Counselors in Training (ages 17+ and have completed grade 11 before the start of summer)
Our Counselor in Training (CIT) program provides our future counselors with the skills to be leaders at Chewonki and beyond.
The young men enrolled in this program will receive Red Cross lifeguarding, CPR and Basic First Aid certifications, as well as Chewonki-specific training on topics such as activity facilitation, wilderness trip preparation, and how to manage a group of campers on a trip.
This is an opportunity for young men who are ready to take on more leadership in their communities. Join us and learn how to run a safe and successful cabin experience for younger campers.
This 8-week program is for a limited number of selected returning male campers. Special application required. Please contact Garth Altenburg with your interests and any questions.
