Dear CIT Parents,

I know this summer has not gone the way we expected it to go, especially with our CIT Program. We know the next step in becoming a staff member after the CIT program is to become an LA (Leader Assistant), a 3 week program that allows your child to fully immerse themselves within a cabin alongside one of our amazing cabin leaders. However, in order to become an LA for this upcoming 2021 summer, participants are required to go through our CIT Training first. 

Instead of having the participants become a CIT next summer and miss out on becoming an LA, we’ve decided to have the option for campers who were meant to be CITs this past summer to join our virtual CIT program. This virtual program will span from August to April with a zoom each month covering a new topic they would have learned during their 2 weeks at camp. We also will have opportunities for them to shadow our staff during our weekend camps throughout the year that are required in order to finish the CIT program. 

The best part about all of this is that we are offering this for free! We want to make sure that our CITs feel comfortable and ready to be with a cabin as an LA in 2021. 

If this is something that interests you please let us know (summer@campwood.org) and we will send you more information regarding dates, times and schedule. If you are interested in having your child participate as a CIT during summer 2021 rather than an LA, then please feel free to register them for our CIT session next year. I hope everyone is having a safe and fun summer and we hope to see you soon!

In the Spirit of Camp,

Taylor “Ruby” Twombly
