Volunteers & CITs
Counselors in Training are an invaluable component to our summer camp experience. They bring new energy, new ideas, and a helping hand to the permanent summer staff and each session staff. Serving as a CIT is a great way to gain valuable work experience and “try out” being a staff member.
CITs are welcome at Elementary, Middler, and Junior High Camps.
CITs must be high school graduates or a minimum of 18 years old.
