for Teen Girls Interested in Leadership in Summer Camps
WHAT IS IT?
Counselor-in-Training (CIT) is the second course in the camp leadership program. It includes outdoor skills, teaching techniques, and methods for working with campers. The course is for girls who want to work at day, twilight, weekend, and resident troop camps. It meets the requirements for those working on the CIT pin. Attendance at the entire weekend is required. This is a working weekend – girls will have very little free time. This one-time training allows you to work as a CIT at any Girl Scout camp. Additional camp-specific training may be required by each individual camp.
WHO CAN GO?
Currently registered Girl Scouts in the eighth grade or above, or the equivalent. It is recommended that girls have earned the Cadette Program Aide Award or have prior camping experience before attending the CIT course.
