What's New

Teen Counselor and CIT Applications are due November 30, 2021

Counselors and Counselors-in-Training (CITs) serve a critical role in the 4-H Camping program. Teens are used to fill these roles due to their ability to relate to campers and provide a safe and open dialogue with campers. Because of the level of responsibility, this position requires teens to be highly self-motivated and responsible, with great communication skills and leadership. Counselors are assigned campers to directly supervise for the duration of the camp experience. CITs serve in a learning position where they support Counselors and develop the skills needed to become a Counselor. Throughout the year, Counselors and CITs are invited to engage in an assortment of volunteer opportunities as well as leadership and team-building projects.
