What is it?
Have a Scout in your unit with an interest in the dynamics of camp life as a staff member? Then the Counselor in Training (CIT) Program is the perfect fit for them. Scouts who apply for this program will spend three weeks working alongside our staff learning and experiencing the perks of being a Hinds Staffer, building leadership and communication skills and getting an early start in some work experience.
Benefits of this Program? 
There are an infinite number of benefits that come from the CIT program. 
  • During their week 1 of 3, CITís will shadow in five different areas at camp, build relationships with other CITís by participating in unique program opportunities, and learn about what it means to be a scout and a camp staffer.
  • During week 2 of 3, CITs assist in one area, assisting in key instruction under the watchful eye of the area directors. It is our goal to introduce our CITs to being active members of the camp staff team.
  • During week 3 of 3 you will return as a camper participating in the regular camp schedule.  You may choose to come during week 3 or week 4 of camp.
