Counselor In Training

Programs Counselor In TrainingFind a Program

The Counselor in Training program (CIT) is a hands-on leadership program designed for high school students looking to gain professional experiences through working with young children and adults. The CIT’s are under the mentorship of a director and lead counselor as they progress through the program. CIT’s will be able to experience, first-hand, the roles and responsibilities of acting as a counselor for campers.

This year, to maintain cohort integrity, the CIT program will run as two separate sessions.  The first week that a CIT is registered, they will spend the week “learning the ropes”- working with the CIT staff to train to work with campers.  They’ll learn programming, leadership, and how to manage challenging campers and situations.  We’ll also cover topics like diversity, safety, and teambuilding.  The second week that they are enrolled, the CIT will be placed with a camper cohort, and work with the counselor staff in the group to provide support and gain experience.  CITs can repeat their second week as many times as they like- we’ll work to provide diverse experiences each week. 

CIT candidates must be at least 13 years old, and entering Grade 9 or higher in the fall. 

Next year, we will offer a CIT 2 progam- in order to be eligible for that, you must have completed at least two sessions (two weeks) of CIT.

From sparking new interests to making new friends, Camp Christopher gives 4- to 12-year-olds a summer of fun and new adventures. Campers have the unforgettable opportunity to develop important skills, try new activities, and play within the safety of a small group of boys and girls the same age. Each division of the program has been designed to challenge campers with the support of staff and fellow campers. At Camp Christopher our campers benefit from:

  • A close counselor-to-camper ratio within a small group structure
  • Experienced and caring staff who love what they do
  • Increasing opportunities for camper choice built into the schedule
  • A diverse and age-appropriate program with specialist driven and counselor driven activities
  • A safe and close-knit community where children discover new interests and create lifelong friendships
*Campus and program tours will be available in the spring.
