CIT/JC Training Weekend for 2017 is April 22-23
CIT/JC Registration for Training Weekend is February 5 at 7:00 p.m.

CIT Program

All 14 years olds or 8th graders who enroll for summer camp are automatically signed up as CIT I's, and all 15 year olds or 9th graders are CIT II's. The two-step CIT program focuses on encouraging these young adults to work together as a group, while building leadership, personal, and cooperative skills that they will need in the later years of the program as well as in their lives outside of camp. During this stage of the program, CIT's also get to, for the first time, experience a little of what goes on "behind the scenes" at camp and may have the opportunity to participate in the creation of the exciting themed events that take place each week. There is an additional leadership weekend, prior to the beginning of camp that is compulsory for all CIT's. The purpose of the weekend is to help prepare CIT's for the coming summer; this will allow them to better enjoy their time at Summer Camp. This is also an excellent opportunity for CIT's to meet other CIT's and increase their leadership skills. The weekend usually takes place in late April or early May, and there may be multiple sessions to choose from. While it is suggested to participate in all steps of the program, 15 year olds, who have never been CIT I's at summer camp before are certainly welcome to sign up as CIT II's.


CIT Program

 

Spring Leadership Workshops

In past summers all CIT I and II were required to attend one of the spring CIT Leadership Workshops. The workshops are intended to help our CIT's gain valuable skills though instruction, role playing, teamwork activities, group projects, and a number of other fun and interesting activities. The workshop is also a great opportunity to meet new people and learn all about the exciting opportunities that await during a summer as a CIT.

This workshop is not mandatory, but is highly recommended. Not only will it provide each CIT with a greater understanding on what to expect during the summer, but it allows them to meet other CITs and interact with the staff as well. The staff tries hard to not only make these weekends educational, but extremely fun as well.

JC Program

16 and 17 year olds enroll at summer camp as JC I's and JC II's respectively. The two-step JC program focuses on applying leadership and social skills within the camp community. A greater emphasis is placed on interacting with younger campers than in the CIT program and JC's will actually be placed in dorms with younger campers so as to facilitate interaction. During this stage of the program, JC's take on more responsibility around camp and are asked to take an active role in designing and preparing activities for the themed night events. JC's also have an opportunity to work closely with members of the staff both inside and outside of the dorm environment. This gives JC's a chance to learn, for example, how to run a dorm, plan an event, or build a ride, from the experienced staff members. Again, while recommended, it is not necessary to have participated in the CIT or JC program before in order to sign up as a JC, and all those new to camp are certainly welcome to sign-up.

JC's are allowed to attend the voluntary Leadership Workshops, that coincide with the dates of the CIT Workshops. JCs will be notified by mail when they are allowed to sign up for the weekend.
