Counselor in Training (CIT) Program

Let us guide your 5th-8th grader on a journey to develop a comprehensive suite of leadership skills such as personal initiative, responsibility and self-confidence!

Program Overview

We believe leadership skills require a practical setting to truly blossom. Our 5th-8th grade Counselor in Training (CIT) Program trains your young leader to independently problem solve, take initiative, mentor younger children, and enjoy the fruits of supervised responsibility!

We offer two CIT positions for each week of camp. Our young leaders receive daily training from our Camp Directors while assisting them in the operations of camp. CIT's walk away from this experience with skills and know-how to be fun and responsible camp counselors that could ultimately lead to a first job with Nature Rangers!

How It Works

Apply to our program and receive comprehensive leadership training and work experience as a CIT! In between our fun and interactive activities, our leaders both assist and participate in group hikes, games, wildcrafts and free play.
