Counselor–in–Training Opportunities for High School Students!

Counselors-in-Training (CITs) at Summer Escape are an integral part of our program. Each CIT will be placed with a team or activity to learn how to work with children. Under the guidance of our CIT Director, CITs will learn about team building, songs and games to play with students and have the opportunity to learn about working with students. CITs receive training, a t-shirt and experience. This three year program is designed to provide a progression in responsibility working at Summer Escape. Come join the fun!!


Applicants must have a high moral character, emotional maturity, and strong leadership skills. CITs must be committed to working with young children and be fully committed to the Summer Camp program. Both our staff and volunteers leave lasting impressions on hundreds of young children each summer.

Students can choose 2 weeks or up to all seven weeks of the summer program. Training is required prior to the start of camp.
