Are you ready for a challenge? This four-week program is designed for motivated rising 9th and 10th graders interested in developing their own leadership styles and becoming counselors. CITs are placed in a Summer at Park program and partnered with an experienced mentor who will coach, encourage, and teach aspiring counselors how to lead a group of campers. Their mentors will provide periodic evaluations that will encourage and support each CIT to improve his or her social, supervisory, and leadership skills. Successful participants may be encouraged to apply for a counselor position in next summer.
Participants accepted in the CIT program should anticipate meeting with the Summer at Park staff for an interview during the registration process and gathering as a group for at least one evening in the spring for a briefing about program expectations.
