COUNSELOR-IN-TRAINING

Are you entering 11th or 12th grade? Do you want a unique and rewarding summer experience? Our Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program might be for you!

Being a CIT gives teens the opportunity to see camp through the eyes of a staff member, while also still enjoying time with their peer group. Program highlights include:

  • Learn valuable skills in leadership through formal training sessions with camp staff
  • Grow to be a role model as you work and play with younger campers
  • Benefit from the fun and friendship-building with peers that is the hallmark of our camp

CITs can apply for this program during Camp Bob Waldorf or Kibbutz Bob Waldorf, our Jewish camp program. While CITs do not need to be Jewish to attend, we ask that they are respectful of our campers’ religious beliefs and camp’s practices at that time.

CIT

RETREAT STAFF
