Counsellors-in-Training Program

CIT Program - Ages 14 - 18

The Counsellor-in-Training (CIT) program is a two-week program that puts emphasis on team-building, goal-setting, communication, and leadership skills. This program offers a community-based approach to leadership, and participants will apply the skills they learn to community and camp events.
