What is a C.I.T.?
C.I.T. (Counselor in Training) is a program that was designed for those campers who have exceeded the age limit to be a camper, but may not be old enough to stay at home by themselves all day. The C.I.T. program offers important pre-employment and character building experience to eligible youth. To be eligible for the C.I.T. program, campers must be 11 years old by the start of camp. Informational packets go out after the New Year for campers who are eligible. These campers complete a written application and an interview with the Camp Director and Head Counselor. A special training is held for C.I.T.’s to help prepare them for their new responsibilities.

Unfortunately we are not able to have all who are eligible attend Camp Canton as a C.I.T. due to the program’s rising popularity!
