NEW 2-Week Program
for Teens who have
Completed 11th Grade
For 2021 we have completely revamped our CIT program. The CIT program is very helpful for those teen campers whose ultimate goal is to one day become a camp counselor.
The CIT program has an intentional focus on teaching introductory engagement skills and techniques of caring for and encouraging younger campers. Our objective is not only to prepare our teens for future counselor activity responsibilities, but also build a dynamic and connected group of young leaders. CITs have the opportunity to shadow Flat Rock staff at both activity areas and cabin groups while receiving mentoring to develop their ability to lead younger campers. Time will also be spent in breakout sessions to acquire additional transferable leadership skills.
During their time at camp, CITs will work together to complete an on-site service project. The weekend trip is built into the two week program and is a time for our CITs to continue to build on connections and friendships, reflect on lessons learned in week one and plan for increased leadership opportunities in week two.
Collectively all these skills will benefit our CITs should they apply to take part in our new program following their completion of the 11th grade. Participation in the CIT program makes their future program and staff applications stronger, but does not guarantee a position as a counselor.
