CIT Camp

Counselors In Training Camp

Hands-on training for 17-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:

  • Gain valuable leadership skills that will serve you well at home, in school, and in your own community
  • Become confident teaching in multiple class areas around camp
  • Learn how to work with ages 5 to 15 in different camp settings
  • Be considered with returning staff members during the hiring process
  • Get paid at a second year counselor rate if you are hired for the following season
  • Receive your lifeguard certification with no additional charge (optional - swimming level dependent)
