Girl Scout Summer Camp Counselor In Training Opportunities

Do you think being a camp counselor would be the bee’s knees? The CIT Program is an opportunity for older girls to start their leadership journey. CITs participate in unit life, stays with younger campers, shadowing staff members & have opportunities to talk with camp administrators about what it takes to work in the outdoor profession. Girls must take CIT training before coming to camp to get the second portion of their training.
