CIT Camp

Counselors In Training Camp for Ages 17 -18

Hands-on training for 17 - 18 year-olds who want to be camp counselors or work with children.  Must have completed your Junior year of high school or equivalent, and have completed an LIT session or have recently attended Hosmer Point as a camper. The CIT program is our way of building exceptional camp counselors for the future.  If your goal is to be the best counselor ever, you need to be a CIT!  Besides assisting with the daily operations of camp, CITs have an opportunity to lead programs and gain the Red Cross certifications (at no extra charge) you'll need to be a camp counselor.


CITs Will:

  • Obtain Red Cross First Aid and CPR certification
  • Earn Red Cross Lifeguard certification (for those who pass swim test)
  • Plan and lead camp activities
  • Learn and practice strategies for teaching and working with children
  • Get a chance to delve deeper into favorite program areas
  • The gateway to being a Hosmer Point counselor - be considered for hire along with returning staff.
