A group of J Camps CITs.


The Counselor in Training (CIT) program at J Camps promises to be an exhilarating summer adventure for teens entering 9th and 10th grade. This unique experience is designed to foster personal development in teens, equipping them with invaluable real-life skills, and transforming them into confident individuals. Throughout the program teens will engage with interactive workshops and special guest sessions that enhance their counselor, teamwork, and leadership abilities. Having acquired these new skills, CITs will have the chance to put them into practice by working with campers of various age groups, matching each CIT’s personal qualities.

As they embrace all the J Camps has to offer, CITs will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy camp’s fun while expanding their horizons. Additionally, participating teens have the chance to earn up to 80 hours of community service. And lastly, each CIT will enjoy two off site field trips per session, making this summer adventure truly unforgettable.
