COUNSELORS IN TRAINING
The CIT program is designed for students ages 17 and older who want the benefit of being a member of the staff, while still being a student at CGST. CIT's enroll as 4 week students, but are expected to do a few additional duties and to take on a leadership role. They attend part of staff orientation week, where they receive some leadership training. Once the campers arive, the CITs are primarily students, and also act as adjunct staff. The CITs meet weekly with the Camp Directors to discuss potential student concerns and to weigh in on staff decisions. There is no additional charge for the CIT program, even though CITs are on campus during part of staff orientation and clean up. Enrollment in the CIT program requires both a student application and a staff application. CITs are not guaranteed work in future summers, but the training is designed to give them a leg up for future employment.
