The counselor in training (CIT) program is currently open to any fifteen or sixteen year olds who have been campers at CDW. The four week program runs in two parts.
The first two weeks consist of leadership training mostly apart from main camp. CIT’s learn team building, communication skills, and the confidence they need to work with their peers and with children. They also take an overnight canoe trip, and visit other camps.
Weeks three and four integrate with camp programming and give the CIT’s some hands on experience as responsible leaders. They work in the cabins, they lead activities, and they have a chance to learn from experienced counseling staff.
If you are interested in the CIT program, please contact the office for more information and an application.
