What does it take to be a leader? This special three-week leadership development program is designed for teens who want to become camp counselors. Using proven online training resources combined with classroom instruction and hands-on experience, CITs gain the skills needed to become every camper’s favorite counselor. Working with other teens, CITs learn effective teaching methods, sharpen their communication skills, and develop leadership competencies. They are engaged in all aspects of camp life—from supervising recess to accompanying campers to the pool and on field trips—as well as planning special activities for various age groups. Exploration of the different stages of child development, individual styles and needs, and health and safety rounds out the training program.
