Counselor-in-Training Program

Participants must be at least 15-years-old by the start of the first session.

Join CBC’s stellar team of counselors to learn what it takes to be a camp leader! The CIT program provides opportunities for growth and challenge to prepare teens to become a junior staff member at camp or gain skills for future jobs working with children. The CIT program is a minimum commitment of two weeks, with the first week in Training and the second (or more) as an Apprentice. The CIT program involves a selective application process; when we receive your regular camp registration, we will send you the CIT application.

The Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program is being revamped in 2019! A CIT registration is a three-week enrollment (at least two weeks required). The total cost for a three week program is $115/$172 plus the $25 registration fee. The program starts with a week of training with a dedicated staff member and followed by at least one week of apprenticeship. In the apprenticeship week(s) a CIT will be paired with a camper age-group or program area in which they have a strong interest and continue a mentor relationship with the CIT counselor and program staff members.

A CIT may participate in more than two apprenticeship weeks.

Our Counselor-In-Training program is a great way to prepare yourself for future employment at CBC or with other similar programs. (Note: Successfully completing your CIT experience can make a great impression, but does not guarantee future employment.)
