The Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program is designed to give teens entering their sophomore or junior year in high school hands-on experience volunteering in one of our camp programs in preparation for future employment.

Those participating in the CIT program will receive the same training as paid staff, including CPR and First Aid certification.   The CPR and First Aid training is provided for a minimal certification fee.  CITs will gain hands-on work experience volunteering at a Camp Clarita park location during the eight week camp program by assisting camp counselors with activities while increasing their sense of responsibility as well as developing leadership and communication skills.
