This is a hands-on-program intended to provide teens the opportunity to learn the basic responsibilities similar to those of our counselors. This includes planning daily activities, collaborating with coworkers, behavior management, public speaking, and first aid training. Participants will focus on tools and skills to become the best counselor while learning about Camp Bay View. Each C.I.T. will be provided opportunities to put learned skills into action while co-leading camp groups in a supportive environment.
All teens interested in the LEAP or CIT program must complete and submit an application form. Once reviewed qualifying teens will be contacted about an interview with the LEAP/CIT coordinator to determine if the program is the right fit. At the conclusion of the interview process, all Teens will be notified to let them know if they are accepted into the program.
