Counselor in Training



Our Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program gives rising 10th graders a taste of the hard work and big rewards that go along with being an In the City Camp counselor. During this hands-on program, CITs will experience camp from a staff perspective when they:

  • Help counselors lead Kid Camp (Kindergarten through 5th grade) bunks
  • Engage with and serve as positive Jewish role models to Kid campers
  • Assist Kid campers during specialist-led activities like art, dance, and magic
  • Attend and support staff during Kid Camp field trips
  • Lend a helping hand during camp-wide Shabbat programs

Like our staff, CITs will gain the communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills colleges and future employers value.
