Teen Leadership Program (Jr. CIT)

The purpose of the Jr CIT program is to develop character, leadership skills, and the knowledge needed to be an effective role model. Our animated, motivational, and responsible leaders will guide our young teens to being the most ideal camp counselor. Our trained staff will provide the Jr CIT with unique challenges that will be demonstrated through laughter, teamwork, and problem solving. We focus on each individual’s strengths, driving them to reach goals for themselves and their peers. We strongly believe any young teen deserves the chance to utilize the vital life skills we practice throughout our program. This training will prepare our candidates for the full-fledged CIT program when they apply at age 15.

The Jr CIT must be at least 14 years of age by the end of the season, will receive 20% off their tuition, a CPR/AED & First Aid certification, in addition to community service hours! Jr CIT's are brought through an interview to introduce the process; we encourage candidates to get involved through every step of the way (online application, scheduling of interview & independently attending the interview) as for we create a non intimidating atmosphere to enhance their work ethic and provide the confidence and practice they need for future endeavors.
