About the Program

The Counselor in Training (CIT) program at J Camps offers teens entering 9th and 10th grade an opportunity to learn a variety of leadership and real-life skills during the summer.  CITs learn through team building, interactive workshops, as well as participating in all the fun that camp has to offer.  The CIT program enjoys high involvement from the JCC's leadership team who in cooperation with the CIT Director, design and facilitate special leadership workshops for the CITs. It is a unique chance to engage with some of the top leaders in their field! CITs put the skills they learn to practice while working with different age groups throughout their summer at camp.  The CIT program offers a fun and safe way for teens to earn up to 80 hours of community service each session that they participate.  In addition to the fun we have every day, the CIT program includes special days for fun and cohort bonding, amazing field trips, and an overnight experience at the J. 

Field Trips
This year, we have designed amazing CIT day-trip experiences with trips to Washington DC and Philadelphia! Each of these trips will culminate with an overnight experience at the J. In Session One, CIT's will also experience a fun-packed day at Hershey Park, PA.
Session One Trips: Washington DC and Hershey Park, PA
Session Two Trip: Philadelphia, PA
Trip Dates TBD
