The CIT Program provides a learning environment for young adults to acquire leadership skills which can be utilized in every aspect of life. If you have already completed the CIT program, you can apply to be on staff directly online!

The Leadership Training Program is open to youth ages 17 to 19, with or without diabetes and has an application process. Qualifications we look for in our counselors in training are teens that can demonstrate a level of maturity that enables them to assume responsibility and develop strong leadership skills.

The applicant must demonstrate an interest in camping and show the ability to learn and work with diabetic children. Being a healthy role-model for children with diabetes is critical! Young leaders are given an opportunity to learn and explore group dynamics, human development, communication skills, recreational programming, and organization.

The objective of this two-year program is to build a strong counseling staff for our program and promote leadership in our communities and at camp. All first-year applicants complete an application with two reference forms. Responsibilities in the first year will include learning camp operations, developmental needs of children, how to lead a group, and other key components of a camp staff member. You may assist in the kitchen, help at the pool, and work in crafts or the store. Focus will be on basic staff and leadership skills.
