A CIT is an assistant to an assigned group of campers and supervised by a qualified staff professional. They must have a positive attitude and be willing to assist their assigned group. CIT’s are also responsible for assisting Counselors or Directors in leading, setting up and tearing down activities. CIT’s are still considered to be “campers” and therefore will not be left alone with children at any time. CIT’s are not permitted to discipline campers. Among the many other duties of a CIT, they are there to assist in the supervision and care of campers, assist in the maintenance of camp supplies and equipment, perform tasks assigned by the Counselor or the Camp Director, work with Counselors, in carrying out daily activities, receive on-the-job training for future counselor status job opportunities, and to maintain a positive relationship with campers, Counselors and other staff members.
