Our CIT (Counselors in Training) program is the final step for our campers, age 14, before becoming eligible to join the staff as a Junior Counselor. This program provides a tremendous learning situation for young teens as they assist and share experiences with our Senior Counselors.
This “in training” program is designed for the camper who is beginning to learn how to work with children. A CIT must come to camp with a real interest in taking on the additional responsibility of being an integral part of the counselor team.
In order to give the CIT a variety of experiences, their assignment will change throughout the summer. Director and Counselor staff will also provide weekly training opportunities for Counselors in Training to facilitate their transition from a camper to staff mentality.
Although still considered a staff “in training”, the CIT will be assigned to assist all day throughout the season with a group or at a specialty.
As this program is a tremendous learning experience for those 14 year olds who would like to be considered for a Junior Counselor position in future summers, those entering 9th grade must attend a minimum of 1 week (5 full days).
All CITs are required to attend a staff orientation with the junior and senior counselors. Details will follow.
Cost for the CIT program can be seen on the Baba Sports Camp tuition page.
