CIT: Counselor-in-Training

CIT’s must have completed 8th or 9th grade and be at least 14 or 15 years old. The Camp Virginia CIT Program, designed for our oldest campers, emphasizes many useful skills: Learning to Teach and Work with People, Responsibility, Leadership, Teamwork, and Thoughtfulness Towards Others.

Our CV Aide Group is our “farm team” for the Junior Counselor and ultimately the SC Staff. We are proud of the numbers of this age group who consistently return to Camp Virginia with the intent of serving as JC’s and SC’s someday. In addition to training sessions, they help in favorite activities they choose, assist in the cabins, and have fun and camaraderie as a group. Our CIT’s have more responsibility, but also more privileges than the younger campers.
