CIT Program

Are you a young adult seeking a unique, fun, and rewarding job training experience? Consider joining CYJ as a CIT this summer!

Our Counselor in Training (CIT) program is available to campers entering 12th grade. Participants will get to enjoy Camp as campers, exploring activities designed just for them and never solely responsible for other children. At the same time, they’ll get a hearty introduction to the life of counselor, apprenticing with seasoned pros to see what the madrich/a life is all about!

Instead of living in their own bunk, CITs join a counselor team in a cabin with another aidah (age group). In this fully immersive setting, they get more than hands-on training in every aspect of bunk life; they also begin developing the incredible “soft” skills that hiring managers look for in every job setting—communication, teamwork, leadership, and more.

They’re not “on the job” all the time though. CITs get time off every day and opportunities to see each other and enjoy the camp life. (And did we mention that CITs not only have a better chance of being hired by CYJ in the future, but they also receive a higher salary to recognize their superior training?)

So if you’re looking for a summer that’s both rewarding and fun, if you want to return to the joy of a season at CYJ, then sign up to be a CIT today! You don’t want to miss this unforgettable program!
