    Participants in the CIT Program have the opportunity to develop the skills and experience they need to become camp counselors in summers to come. CIT's participate in special sessions on group dynamics, Jewish programming and leadership training.

    Some people feel that leaders are born, but at the Neil Klatskin Day Camp we feel they are made. From the time our Counselors-In-Training (CIT) step onto our grounds to the time they leave, they are all learning and growing through a vast array of activities and social interactions with different age groups. CIT’s have an incredible opportunity to bridge the gap between being a camper to becoming a dynamic staff member with fantastic friends. CIT’s gain valuable skills that will help shape their future as a staff member, into college and beyond.
