Counselor-In-Training Program

Counselor-In-Training Program.

Campers ages 14 and older are invited to participate in the Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program. This program is an amazing opportunity to learn teamwork, responsibility, and the satisfaction that accompanies a job well done. The CIT program is a unique opportunity for teens to develop these important skills and gain experience that looks great on employment and college applications, all while having an awesome time meeting teens from all over San Diego. CITs not only help creating outstanding experiences for our campers, they develop many amazing memories of their own. CITs are integral in the success of our camp and have a great time while doing it too!
