Calling all future camp counselors! If you are ready to unlock your
leadership potential and your love of the outdoors, you can start
working towards your Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Awards.
In our CIT program, you will gain the tools you need to become a
mentor to younger campers. This training is aligned with the CIT
Awards Girl Scouts can earn and display on their uniform. Once you
begin working on our CIT II Award, you may choose to take one of our
specialty tracks, including a focus on the equestrian, challenge
course, or waterfront programs.
These leadership programs are the first steps toward learning the
skills necessary to one day work as a volunteer CIT and then a
full-fledged camp counselor!
CIT ▶ CIT II ▶
The CIT Award is only the beginning. Here's how you can go from
trainee to paid camp counselor.
- CITs must attend the two-week CIT I Camp to complete their CIT
- CITs then attend at least one CIT II Camp
session. The CIT I Award is a
prerequesite for this session.
- If they have earned
both the CIT I and CIT II Awards and are still enrolled in high
school, they may apply to be a Camp Ambassador at one of our summer
camps. Application comming soon.
