For some, the love of summer camp doesn't fade when you grow up. Our summer CIT Program is an opportunity to graduate from camper to skilled and qualified camp counselor through a four-week summer training program.
After an application and interview process, six candidates will be selected to participate in an innovative season of fun and learning. Through hands-on experience and guidance from our seasoned Summer Rec Camp staff, CIT's grow into confident, responsible and knowledgeable leaders. Focus will be on safety and personal development while under the supervision of qualified staff at Prouty Beach. By summer's end, CITs gain experience handling expected and unexpected emergencies, creating camp activities and memorable moments, shadowing veteran counselors and receiving First Aid, CPR and AED training. Participants must have completed their 7th grade school year before attending this program.
CIT’s are expected to be “on duty” Monday-Friday for all four weeks of training. This is a selective
program with only six spaces available per summer. Interested candidates can download an
