CIT Program

The Camp Meraki Counselor in Training program is designed for students, ages 16-17. The program is geared at campers with an interest in working with some of the younger campers, and training to be counselors at Camp Meraki. This opportunity offers lessons in growth and leadership development, and we have had a number of successful staff members begin as CITs in this program. Not to mention, as usual at Camp Meraki, you're in for a great time!

Our CIT program is two years long. Campers must complete both years of the training program in order to be considered for the Camp Meraki Staff.
