Future Stars Counselor-In-Training Program (CTAP)
The Future Stars CIT Program (CTAP) is designed to prepare former campers with the skills needed to become future counselors. The program focuses on teaching the CITs important skills such as leadership, communication, team-work, and responsibility. Working under the guidance of our experienced directors, CITs will assist in all aspects of the camp program’s daily activities. CIT's will also receive daily counselor training sessions and performance feedback by our CTAP Directors aimed at building self-confidence and interpersonal skills.
CIT participants must be at least 14 years old. To be eligible, each participant must be willing to dedicate a total of 5 weeks to this program throughout the duration of the summer. Each CIT will be assigned a program by the CIT Directors and Future Stars Site Director. Program placement can vary throughout the summer depending on the size of the programs and needs of the camp.
The goal with each CIT is to find personal and professional growth with a fun, nurturing environment that will expose participants to the various tasks required of a camp counselor!
