Sleepaway Camp CITs and Counselors ready for DJ Party!

Sleepaway Camp CITs and Counselors ready for DJ Party!


The dream of working at Camp

Our Summer Counselor in Training Program is specially designed to train our oldest campers in how to be the best Camp Herrlich leaders they can be.  Alongside the typical day to day fun and adventure of Camp, Counselors in Training also get leadership workshops weekly that mirror the summer orientation that is required of the Camp Herrlich staff.  They also get to experience Group Assignment twice weekly, where they will join a day or sleepaway camp group and practice the skills they have learned.

Day Camp CIT applicants must have finished 8th grade and Sleepaway Camp CIT applicants must have finished 10th grade before the program begins.  The program is open to anyone who meets the age requirements, you do not have to have been a camper with us before.  We are proud to say that over 90% of our Counselors in Training pass the program and are recommended for promotion to Junior Counselor the following year.  

Our Summer 2019 Counselor in Training program will run from July 8th to August 9th.  CITs must be able to commit to all five weeks of the program, so mark your calendars!  Sleepaway Camp CITs must leave the property on July 12th and return on July 14th and leave on August 2nd and return on August 4th in between Sleepaway camp sessions.
