Camp Counselor in Training Program

CIT Program
The Town of Poughkeepsie offers a Counselor in Training (CIT) Program for 15 and 14 year olds who attend summer camp. 

CIT - 15 year olds
Jr. CIT - 14 year olds

If you have a child who is 14 or 15 years old, they can register for camp at a discounted rate and take part in our CIT Program. A CIT and Jr. CIT will act as an assistant to the camp counselors while being trained to become a counselor at the age of 16. The opportunity offers a great summer experience and one that they can return to year after year. The program is designed for campers who want to become camp counselors. 

This is a rewarding position, but it may not be for every teen. There is an interview process where your child must demonstrate their desire to one day become a camp counselor and they must be able to commit to the program schedule. 

This program is not an employment position nor is it a guarantee of future employment. 

CITs and Jr. CITs can choose one of two sessions or both sessions. 
Sessions are:
July 5 - July 21
July 24 - August 11
