Counselor In Training Option:
If you are in 8th grade currently and will have completed 8th grade by the time of camp, you are eligible to be a Counselor In Training (CIT). On the camp registration form, there will be an option to check if you are willing to be a CIT. If you are interested in being a counselor in high school, please consider being a CIT. CIT's do not meet outside of camp, but are expected to hold a certain leadership rol during camp and will be shadowing a current camp counselor. They may also be asked to help out with various camp activities and serve as a role model for other campers.
