    The CIT Program at Sesame/Rockwood Day Camps is the perfect opportunity for young teens to develop the necessary skills to become employed as a camp counselor. CITs and Interns will learn important life skills such as leadership development, teamwork,  communication, management and cooperation throughout the summer. 

    Each day  the C.I.T.s and Interns (2nd year C.I.T.s entering 9th grade) report to their Director for a workshop training session.  These workshops highlight what is required to be a good role model and counselor for the younger campers.  They then report to the Senior Bunk Counselor of their assigned bunk for 5 periods to engage in scheduled activities with the younger campers,  as well as lunch with the bunk.

    To balance out the day,  the C.I.T.s and Interns interact within their own group, participating in recreational activities for a portion of the day

    To prepare our campers for a future role in the Sesame/Rockwood community, we offer a stipend at the end of the summer with an additional bonus for exceptional performance!
