Who are our CITs?
As part of Tanadoona’s progressive leadership development program, the Counselor-in-Training program prepares youth to become future camp counselors. During the two week training, CITs participate in leadership and team-building exercises, receive training on camper care, health/wellness and activity planning. In the second week of the program, they work side-by-side with Tanadoona counselors, leading groups of Resident or Day Camp campers. Throughout the year, many CITs continue leadership training through the Teen Outdoor Leaders program.
Part counselor, part camper, Counselors-in-Training (many of whom have grown up through Tanadoona) are valuable leaders in our camp community. We asked a handful of this year’s CITs why Tanadoona is special to them. Here’s what they had to say.
