A rigorous leadership program that teaches management and leadership skills.
Campers eligible for the program must be 16 years old or have completed the tenth grade. They attend camp for the entire 7 weeks, spending half of their time in the camper activities of their choice and the other half in an intensive program designed to provide a base in understanding child development, leadership styles, skills and practice, decision-making process, independent thinking, teaching methods and learning styles, and awareness of job responsibilities. The program is supervised and directed by the CIT Counselor who has many years of experience in these areas.
Successful completion of the CIT PROGRAM will be determined by the CIT Counselor and will be recognized with a certificate issued by Camp Carysbrook as well as 40 community service hours. Red Cross certificates will be emailed directly to the CIT at the end of the summer at the email provided by the CIT.

CITs will be evaluated in writing by themselves and the supervising staff. These evaluations will be shared verbally with each CIT.
