Counselor In Training (CIT) Program: Ages 14-15

Teenagers interested in becoming a CIT this summer, will be required to fill out an application and will then go through an interview with our Camp Directors. The 2018 CIT Program is for 14 & 15 year olds (must be 14 by May 1st, 2018 to qualify) . This will be a highly selective program where only a few applicants will be accepted.

The CIT Program is three two-week sessions. The program runs daily from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm at both Camp Joey (grades K - 2) located at the Warren Building and Camp Q (grades 3 - 8) located at Wellesley High School. If selected, you will be able to choose to attend one, two or all three sessions.

If chosen as a CIT, there is NO cost to attend. CIT's will be provided with staff shirts and will be able to attend field trips with their respective camp at no additional cost.

With the guidance of the Camp Directors and other staff members, CIT's will assist in leading activities and learning new skills in a variety of settings at Camp. At the conclusion of their two-week session, CIT's will also design and complete a work project of their own choosing, giving back to the Camp community.
