Counselor In Training Program (C.I.T.) – Ages 16 – 17

Sessions 1 & 2: June 27- July 17

Camp Gorham’s CIT program allows teens to develop leadership skills, make lifelong friends and experience camp through the eyes of a counselor. Not only will participants be well suited as future counselors, but they will gain valuable life skills. College recruiters love seeing our leadership program on an applicant’s resume. This three-week program begins with training and team building. Then CIT’s assist and live with cabin groups of younger campers from sun-up to sun-down. For the final week CITs debrief, evaluate, receive further training. A spectacular and productive way to spend summer days! CIT candidates must provide three references and interview with the Program Director prior to acceptance in the program. Successful CIT evaluations can result in internship opportunities for the remained for summer 2021.
