The goal of the CIT program is to provide high- school- level campers with the information and training needed to become excellent camp counselors. The skills and concepts presented will enable campers to learn important life skills. Hands-on activities, as well as side-by-side camper/counselor/CIT opportunities, are part of the CIT experience. Different levels of CIT classes are offered, progressing from the most basic skills in camp counseling to more advanced leadership opportunities. Level I CIT will focus on leadership, a basic understanding of child development, health and safety, camper activities, and classroom management.  Level II CIT will focus on observation and implementation of activities and classroom management through shadowing camp instructors and counselors in a very hands-on experience. Level II CIT is eligible for a $50 stipend after successful completion with a satisfactory evaluation. (Enrollment does not guarantee future employment with Glenelg Country School.)
