CIT/LIT Program

Teen Programs @ SSDC

Information about program, downloadable forms, etc..

As a CIT (Counselor-In-Training) or LIT (Leader-In-Training), these campers are ready to move on to a different kind of experience as a camper! A CIT/LIT is an individual who is looking to challenge him or herself by participating in a leadership program that gives them the opportunity to participate, contribute and become involved with younger children in a camp setting. A CIT/LIT is a current 7th or 8th grade boy or girl who is ready to accept responsibility for being a positive role model and motivated to practice and learn group dynamics. These campers learn to work as part of a team under the direction of senior staff members. This program provides your child an opportunity to practice growing up and is a perfect partner to family, school and community youth activities.
