Counselors in Training, (CITs) are children who are ready to get more than the “camper” experience. CITs are ready to take initiative, work directly with younger campers, learn from staff, and be part of an awesome team! The CIT program prepares children to become a camp counselor – children complete the program with increased self-confidence, a toolbox of leadership skills, and an increased awareness of their impact on the world around them.

 

CITs are children in 4th and 5th grade who are positive team players, role models, enthusiastic about camp, helpful and friendly. CITs want to learn and practice leadership skills in an outdoor camp environment. CITs are willing to try new things, take on challenges and discover their potential.

 

Camp Fire Walla Walla hopes to improve their experience by identifying those older students as CITs and providing a program specifically developed for, and by, them.
