Counselor-in-Training (CIT)

Counselor-in-Training (CIT)

Counselor in Training Program (Ages 13-14)

The CIT program is a great introduction for what it takes to be a Marinwood camp counselor!

CITS must be at least entering 8th grade to apply. CITs will work alongside camp staff and learn the day-to-day operations of camp and what it takes to be employed at Marinwood. The program will develop your child’s leadership skills through training, observation and practice. CITs will be assigned to a specific camp each session and have a chance to immerse themselves in that age group. CITS are expected to participate in and assist with camp activities, help supervise campers at all times, work under the supervision of the Camp Director and help provide a fun, positive and safe experience for campers. Marinwood’s goal for our CITS is to make friends, learn leadership skills, and enjoy a summer with Marinwood! When it comes time to apply as a camp counselor, our CITs definitely have a leg up on other applicants.
