Shemesh Camp at The JAmerican Camp Association

Gesher CIT

For campers entering grades 9-10


We made the very tough decision of removing the CIT program this summer as we do not feel campers would get the fantastic experience as they have in the past as a direct result of the many changes we have made to accommodate to safely offer camp due to Covid 19. Please note – we will offer this program next summer.

For those teens looking to eventually make the transition into the workforce, this is a great step in the right direction. Counselors in Training (CITs) will have the opportunity to earn up to 35 hours of community service hours per week as they hone their leadership skills, develop valuable professional related skills, and build lasting relationship with like-minded teens. They will have some similar responsibilities as camp counselors, such as leading camp songs and helping facilitate games and activities, as well as weekly CIT bonding time.
*Please note: CITs are still considered campers and count into group ratio
