Glen Brook’s Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program is an intensive leadership-training program for students who have completed 10th or 11th grade and are 16 or 17 years old.
The below information applies to Farmers-In-Training (FIT's) the one difference being that they spend most of their time on the farm.
Please note: Applications for the summer CIT program are due by January 1st
CITs learn about camp counseling and education, assist in classes, help counselors care for campers, do many daily camp chores in the kitchen, dining room, grounds, barns, etc., and help organize some of the special activities. The CIT mentors supervise CITs. The primary goals of the program are to help participants recognize themselves as leaders, teachers, and positive role models, and to understand what goes into making camp an unforgettable experience for the young people in our care.
CITs must enjoy working with children, embrace and work with the fun and challenges of intense community living, be willing to take initiative and work hard, be willing to give up many personal freedoms and comforts, display outstanding character, and be enthusiastic, creative, self-directed leaders.
