CIT PROGRAM AT SUMMER ADVENTURE
Entering Grade 9 or 10
Wayland High School | 264 Old Connecticut Path | Wayland, MA
Two-Week session Monday through Friday, 8:30am – 3:30pm
CITs will embark on a two week adventure of exciting and fun activities, but also challenges to develop leadership skills. Each will learn a great deal about the art of managing groups– really energetic groups. Our campers look up to their counselors, but they especially admire the CITs as role models. CITs find this program incredibly rewarding and, if they do it right, a whole lot of fun too.
The Counselor-In-Training Program at Summer Adventure is designed for motivated Freshmen and Sophomores interested in becoming future counselors and developing leadership skills. CIT’s are partnered with an experienced mentor who will coach, encourage, and teach aspiring counselors how to lead a group of younger campers. Mentors will provide periodic evaluations that will encourage and support each CIT to improve his or her social, supervisory, and leadership skills.
CIT's are our oldest campers and not staff. While successful completion of the CIT program will prepare CIT's for jobs at any camp, it does not guarantee future employment.
