An exciting leadership development program designed to empower teens by offering new responsibilities, challenges, and adventures including working with younger campers and team-building.  The CIT program provides teens with real-life leadership development and opportunities for growth as role models for the younger campers while having fun, making friends and enjoying some of the perks of being at camp. CITs will alternate weeks between spending time with their own group and joining in with younger campers:

  • Become oriented to the CIT role and learn about leadership styles
  • Participate in leadership development workshops to learn who they are as leaders and polish their skills
  • Participate in team-building activities to build a CIT community
  • Experience on-site field trips and special guests
  • Enjoy the perks of camp (swim, play, craft, etc…) and get a taste of being a camper
  • Participate in all-camp events and spread the camp spirit, acting as role models.
  • Create and facilitate games and activities for their peers to workshop for younger campers
  • Participate in volunteer and community service opportunities through a Jewish lens. CITs can expect to earn anywhere from 20-40 hours of community service hours
  • Work with the counselors of the camp groups to assist campers
  • Lead activities and games for campers
  • Participate in an evaluation and reflection process to assess personal growth and opportunities for future leadership development
