C.I.T. Program (Grades 9-10)

Jump to: Off-Campus Fun | Day Trips | Overnight Trips

The CIT Program includes:

  • On the job training in a group or specialty area
  • 10 off-campus day trips (5 trips for 4 week CITs), 2 optional overnight trips, and an optional Broadway trip (additional cost for overnights and Broadway)
  • Special after camp and evening CIT ONLY gatherings and outings (designed by the CITs themselves)
  • Daily CIT activities, competitions and swim periods
  • The opportunity to switch positions during the summer to experience different aspects of camp
  • First preference at counselor positions when entering Junior year in High School

What can we say about a program that boasts the perfect balance of being both a camper and a counselor in training? Rolling River’s CIT program is a one of a kind experience that cannot be found at any other day camp. The unique blend of daily CIT activities, off-campus trips, evening CIT functions and the opportunity to learn the “ropes” of becoming a counselor is the reason why there is a waiting list to enroll in this program year after year. Our CIT supervisors and counselors have been Rolling River crew members for many years. They are full-time teachers who accompany the CITs on all off-campus trips and work closely with each of them to provide supervision and training as they prepare to join our staff. Come aboard and “sea” why Rolling River’s CITs enjoy a summer of work and play as they transition from our oldest campers to become our youngest and most devoted counselors for years to come.

All CITs and their parents have a pre-camp meeting with our CIT crew members to review the program carefully, as well as the expectations we have for them during the summer. CITs are carefully placed in the area where we feel they will be the most successful. CITs are campers with limited counselor responsibilities. This is their time to observe seasoned counselors, grow as individuals, learn crucial skills for caring for children and most importantly have a summer filled with memories they can cherish forever.

At Rolling River Day Camp, we believe that off-campus experiences enhance the CIT’s program, as well as teaching them social skills and team-building.  Supervision and safety are paramount on all trips to outside sites.  Therefore, in addition to sending the CIT counselors and Supervisor, a camp nurse and additional staff to lower the counselor-to-camper ratio.  For overnight trips, the Director leads a comprehensive meeting with all of the CITs and staff before the trip embarks, reviewing the itinerary, code of conduct, camper expectations and other necessary details.
