Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Opportunity
If you have a youth 15 years old, who is an experienced camper, loves camp and wants to learn Christian leadership skills, consider the Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program. Each CIT must enlist for at least 4 weeks of summer camp. This is wonderful preparation for a possible future as a paid summer camp counselor. The $100.00/week fee for CIT’s covers their food/food service costs.
