HOW TO BECOME A CIT-2
Last summer, you were of age to become a CIT-1 at Hermann Sons Life Camp. Obviously with the cancellation of Camp, you were unable to participate in the summer camp program. The CIT-1 week at Camp lays the foundation for our CIT-2s to become more involved and hands-on with our campers in the dorms and at the activities.
• The FIRST STEP on the road to becoming a CIT-2 is to complete the on-line application below. The application is for past Hermann Sons Life campers aged 16 (as of Sept.1, 2021). Please complete the application and check CIT-2 if you wish to be considered for the CIT-2 program.
To make up for the loss of the week, we are scheduling an ACCELERATED LEARNING WEEKEND Jan. 16-18, 2021, for eligible CIT-2s in the 2021 summer camp season. If you cannot attend the Accelerated Learning Weekend, you must attend the Staff Development Week before Camp which is scheduled June 6-11, 2021, in order to attend the CIT-2 week.
This weekend is free of charge and we'd love for you to attend. It will help you as you prepare for your role as a CIT-2! In addition to the CIT-2 week that you can attend, CIT-2s are permitted to attend an additional week at Camp. This additional week you will be scheduled to work in the kitchen or as a lifeguard (if certified) for half the day, and permitted to attend and participate in activities for the other half of the day. The additional week can be scheduled with the Executive Camp Director after the campers scheduled CIT-2 week.
The weeks in 2021 in which CIT-2s can enroll are:
Week Two: June 20-June 26, 2021
Week Four: July 11-July 17, 2021
Week Six: July 25-July 31, 2021
