Consider applying for our CIT (Counselor in Training) course!
A CIT (counselor in training) is a camper enrolled in a specialized leadership program which is designed to build up skills in behavior management, risk management/safety awareness, communication, decision making, team building, and interdependency within a community.
The program aims to utilize this combination of skills to develop effective future leaders. A CIT should gain not only greater confidence and sense of accomplishment, but also a variety of skills and knowledge that will help them develop as competent leaders in all walks of life, not just a camp setting. The program accepts a limited number of applicants per session. Camp Wyandot reserves the right to conduct interviews and reference checks of applicants and reserves the right to deny applicants.
To provide the opportunity for young adults to learn the skills (outdoor, professional, safety, communication, and childcare skills) required to become responsible camp counselors through the use of guided sessions and hands on experience with counselors and campers.
This is a two-year course with each session consisting of three and a half consecutive weeks of training at Camp Wyandot summer camp. After successful completion of the second year training the Second Year CIT’s are eligible to participate in an internship experience by assisting for a session. There is no additional charge for the internship program.
