The Counselor In Training program is an introduction to camp staff while still giving campers a learning and camping experience. CITs are led and instructed by the Camp Commissioner who lives with them in the Arrow CIT Training Center, formerly the ECON and BSI program areas. The training center features its own private latrine, adirondacks, and indoor space for training and conferences. CITs give meaningful service to the camp, while working alongside the camp staff to become prepared for working as a camp counselor.
The program provides housing, meals, and training materials. Because participants are considered campers, they are afforded time off to enjoy certain program activities of the camp, and are given a Big Brother who is a member of the camp staff assigned to the CIT who spends time with them ensuring the quality of their experience.
What the CIT program is : An enriching and fulfilling training and volunteer service program for all youth at least 14 years old who have an interest in becoming a camp counselor.
What it is not : A discounted week of camp, nor a guarantee or promise of future hire.
