Behind the Scenes
For the 14 to 17 year old who feels that camp staff is in their future, wonder what it would be like to help teach their favorite programs, or simply want a more cost-effective way of spending a summer at camp... sound like you? The C.I.T. program is the way to go!
Assist staff in offering quality programs in many areas.
Live on Staff Hill for your time in camp.
Have access to staff amenities like our staff kitchen, WiFi in the staff lounge, and electricity in your cabin!
Start your career early: Our C.I.T.s get a full career preparation course while they're here and leave with a Resume, Cover Letter, Reference Letter, and application pro-tips for other work opportunities in Scouting!
Earn while you Learn
Our property and the Lincoln National Forest are the classrooms. Merit badges and activities are the curriculum. While you're a C.I.T. you have the opportunity to earn merit badges, participate in the program, and enjoy plenty of outdoor leisure and adventure.
This program truly is the best of both worlds!
Make the perfect merit badge schedule and get into classes even if they're full.
Spend your mornings with other C.I.T.s and your afternoons in the areas that most interest you.
Learn from the best: Our Program Counselors are qualified in many things outside of the regular merit badge offerings. Take advantage of their knowledge with classes not offered to anyone else!
