About CIT Camps

Our Counselor-In-Training program is a great way for teens to gain job skills and experience! The CIT program consists of two parts: a two-week hands on training in which teens learn how to be Y camp leaders, and fieldwork weeks in which CITs are applying their training while helping run camp. Future CITs must first complete one of the two-week training sessions, be evaluated, and meet certain criteria to be considered for fieldwork. Placement in fieldwork is not guaranteed.

General Summer Camp Information

This summer, your camper will spend each day in small groups organized by age and led by well-trained staff. Activities are designed to meet your camper’s individual needs. Our camps will be full of weekly excursions, arts and crafts, swimming, songs, team building, and outdoor adventures.
