Counselor in Training program

The cut off for applying to be a CIT is April 15th! 
Any questions please feel free to reach out to us. 

My name is Chris Roehler, and I am returning as the Camp Director for the 2023 Camp Season. We are happy to announce to you that we have developed a new program for Counselors in Training, (C.I.T.’s).  

After receiving quite a bit of feedback we developed a new CIT program for eligible campers.

There are a few changes in the program for the 2023 Season as well as for the future. We rebuilt the program based on what many other camps are doing and found to be successful. We have researched the program and how it has been delivered. We reviewed what works and what does not.

We feel the need to share some important information with you regarding what the CIT’s role is.

  • First the State of CT. does not recognize the CIT as a staff member, but rather as a camper. Part of this is a CIT is age 14 or 15. Staff positions start at the age of 16.
  • Second, there will be a fee for each week they attend camp. This fee will be a fraction of the camper fee.
  • Third we are starting to meet with prospective CIT’s starting in December and request they attend a monthly meeting after that. We want the CITs to feel as they are welcome and part of camp and share as much information as possible with them to prepare them for their time that they are with us this summer. We have developed a program that will prepare them for their experience at camp. 

We will be providing more information and in greater detail at our first meeting on December 14th at 7:00pm at Seton. Our Next Meeting will be January 31st 2023 at 7:00pm.  The Meeting will be held in the Pray Building. If your son or daughter is interested in attending camp as a CIT this Summer, please let me know so I have enough materials at the meeting. The leaders that will be working with the CIT’s and will be present to meet with you and your potential CIT.

We look forward to hearing back from you and hope you are starting to enjoy this holiday season!
