Can my child become a CIT even if they are not yet 13 years old by the beginning of summer camp?

In order to participate in the CIT program, your child must turn 13 by August 31.

How many weeks of summer camp must my child participate in to be a CIT?

We do not have a minimum number of weeks, so you can request a single week if that’s what works for you. We do recommend multiple weeks for a richer, more impactful experience.  Your child must attend and complete our CIT summer training day (usually held on a Sunday afternoon in May) before participating in summer camp as a CIT.

Can my child be a CIT during school break or track out camps, outside of the summer season?

We do reserve a limited number of CIT spots for our school break and track out camps. These are awarded on a first come, first serve basis, and the only requirement is that your child must have already participated as a CIT in our summer program (and have already completed CIT training).

Does my child need to have been a camper at Schoolhouse to participate in leadership training?

No! While many of our CITs have been Schoolhouse campers, CITs and Junior Counselors are not required to have attended Schoolhouse camps to apply.
