CITs will serve as mentors to younger campers and will have opportunities to plan and participate in service projects throughout the summer. Each level comes with different responsibilities and expectations. CITs will spend time learning why we have the rules we do and how summer camp is set up. They will plan parties and events, plus help with field trips. Students completing 10th grade may apply to become Junior Counselors. They will provide hands-on support to Merritt Camp Counselors, gaining valuable real-world experience. Junior Counselors are hired for the full summer. Due to the nature of Merritt’s CIT\Junior Counselor program, students may include completion of this program as an internship or volunteer experience when applying to college, future jobs or National Honor Society. All applications are online and must be completed by April 1.
