As a Counselor-In-Training (CIT) you spend one or two weeks volunteering at summer camp, serving alongside our summer camp counselors and staff. Experience the joys and hard work of camp ministry, while developing your leadership skills and growing in your faith.

You must currently be in High School (Grades 9-12) to apply to be a CIT.

CITs are required to attend a weekend of training, Friday-Sunday, April 26-28, 2024.

The schedule for which weeks CITs serve is done in June, so participants know when they will serve at that time. We do our best to accommodate scheduling requests.


Can CITs Also Attend The New High School Camp?

Yes, you sure can, and we encourage you to do so! We’ve picked this week specifically because CITs and most of our summer staff won’t be serving other Youth or Joy Hearts Camps. Don’t miss out on this great week designed specifically for you! Learn more about the new High School Camp >
