The Counselor in Training (C.I.T.) program at Summit Ridge Day Campprogram provides a wonderful opportunity for young adults to further develop their leadership and communication skills, as well as gain experience in supervising, planning, and instructing activities for young children. 

Counselors-In-Training are an important part of our camp staff. Each C.I.T. will be assigned to a group the two week C.I.T. session and become an integral part of our camp community and a leader in his/her group. The program is a combination of training, apprenticeship, and teen socialization that includes working with other C.I.T.s and experienced counselors under the direction of our C.I.T Director Lauren Vogel Freedman.

This summer C.I.T.s will:

  • Gain valuable experience interacting with school-age children
  • Participate in weekly group meetings with C.I.T. Coordinator to discuss topics like leadership & responsibility
  • Take fun Day Trips  to socialize with other C.I.Ts off campus

Responsible young adults entering 8th, 9th, and 10th grade that are interested in making a positive impact on children are ideal candidates for our C.I.T. program. Applicants must complete an interest form and participate in a group interview where they will have to teach a quick game to a small group of peers. At the same time, parents will attend a C.I.T.

This program is selective and we are asking for a minimum commitment of 2 consecutive weeks and an all day training In-service.
