Being a camp counselor is a lot of fun - and it's also a great responsibility. Participants will have a special training program where they will learn about being a counselor and work on developing skills necessary to be an effective leader. Additionally, participants will receive instruction in teaching techniques, camping skills, human relations and child development. Those who commit to the training program will discover a lot about themselves and their leadership potential.
Applicants who have completed the 9th grade as of the 2016-2017 school year are eligible to apply. They also must be able to attend the entire two week session they apply for due to the limited space available at the program.
The CIT program takes place in conjunction with the Camp Lakeshore program. It costs $165 per two week session ($198 for non-residents). This pays for our camp staff time, supplies, First Aid & CPR Training and a special Camp Lakeshore shirt. CITs will not travel on weekly field trips during the actual camp year. It is important to make sure the applicant is available for all the requested sessions. The applicant will rank the sessions they are available on the application with "1" being their top choice and "4" being their last choice if they are interested in all 4 sessions.
