At Indian & Forest Acres, we love our C.I.T.s! Our Counselors-In-Training are valuable assets to our Administrative Staff and their fellow counselors. Our C.I.T.s have “graduated” from being campers in the past, but now, they just can’t stay away from camp! They assist with cabin activities, trip days, and help with other camp traditions throughout the summer. Since they’ve been coming to camp for a while already, they make great resources for current campers because they already know all the tricks of camp!
This summer, we’re excited to share that we have several past campers coming back to be C.I.T.s. Today, we’re introducing you to one of our C.I.T.s who is excited to be back at camp this summer.
Q: How many years have you been coming to Indian Acres?
This will be my third summer at Indian Acres.
Q: What is your favorite memory from your time at Indian Acres…so far?
My favorite memories at camp start with being voted as co-captain of the Color War-winning Red Team this past year. Second, for me, because I started camp when I was older, it’s the friendships I’ve made. Plus, how accepting people were to me to embrace me into the camp culture.
Q: What are you most excited for this summer as a C.I.T.?
This summer, I am really excited to reunite and see my friends again. I’m so excited to get back to my “happy” place.
Q: What do you hope to share with/teach new campers this summer?
I want to share the Indian Acres camp traditions with the new campers, but also teach them that it’s okay if some traditions change and they adapt to the new traditions.
Not only do C.I.T.s bring great camp knowledge to the table, they still get to experience all the fun that Indian & Forest Acres has to offer! While transitioning from campers to counselors as C.I.T.s, they’re learning leadership skills and building their work ethic for future endeavors. C.I.T.s are passionate about camp and working with children and they make incredible additions to our team.
