Camp Starts In

Counselor In Training Program

Eagle Rock Day Camp

The Eagle Rock CIT Program is open to prior Eagle Rock campers who will be 14 or 15 during the summer. CIT’s must commit to either the first half or second half of the summer. Applications are emailed to all prior year eligible campers in December and are due by April 1st.

Application Procedures


Enroll your camper here and be sure to choose from the CIT sessions in the application for a minimum of 4 weeks.  CITs must apply for either the first or second half of the summer.  If they are available for additional time (i.e. the first half plus session 3, please indicate that on the application.)


Complete and submit the CIT Application form.  Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and can be found in your CampInTouch account.


First time CITs must also submit two references.  These can be found at the end of the CIT application.

General Program Details

  1.   Placement in camper groups and/or activity specialty areas on a rotating basis: two weeks assisting general counselors in camper groups, and two weeks learning skills in one or more activity specialty areas of their choice. 
  2.   Leadership training – including personal reflection through group discussions and individual writing assignments, observing program area staff members and general counselors, and leading and presenting to groups.
  3.   Organizing special camp-wide events with our CIT Coordinator, meeting with CIT’s and CIT Coordinator during elective for additional training or team building activities, and being involved in morning/afternoon assemblies.
