The program culminates in an end-of-session cabin placement, where CITs live and work with a cabin supervised by two mentoring counselors. CITs are housed in the Yurt & Squirt facility on camp, with no electricity or running water in the housing, providing for a more rustic camp experience. CITs must go through an application and interview process. Applications are available until November 1. Upon acceptance into the program, registration instructions will be supplied.
