Things to Know about Being a CIT

  • It is mandatory that all CITs attend staff training, as CITs are considered part of the staff team
  • CITs get to experience many of the areas that are important to camp and the CIT functions may rotate between: Being a CIT in a cabin, being a waterfront CIT, being a CIT at day camp (Ki-Wa-Y and Belwood only) and being a CIT in the kitchen
  • Once placement has been confirmed, more information about time off, role expectations and other general information will be shared
