Counselor In Training (CIT)

Counselor In Training (CIT) │ Grades rising 8th – 9th

Becoming a CIT is more than just attending camp as a counselor-in-training or youth leader. It is a prestigious role combining passion with compassion, conviction with caring, and empathy with action. CIT  learn how to deepen their connection with the community, engaging others with a sense of purpose.

The program cultivates maturity, where students emerge as insightful representatives of the school and its community, capable of accurately conveying information about the school’s fundamental values, rich history, diverse topography and ‘attractions’.

The CIT program thrives by developing the skills and habits of the mind and heart to become the leaders our world needs.
