Camp Squankum CIT Program
The CIT Program is an option for our upper lever campers. CITs spend half the day as a camper and the other half of the day with CIT duties which can include helping counselors to clean up after lunch, helping to set up activities, helping to serve pizza, pretzels, and water bottles, assisting younger campers by putting on their swim bands, etc…We do plan special events for the CITs that are separate from our whole camp trips and activities. Our CITs are also permitted to go to the Lake at Hospitality Creek with parental permission and under the supervision of their counselors. CITs are given a 35% discount off the standard week cost of camp.

To be eligible for our CIT Program, a camper must be entering either 8th or 9th grade in the Fall, attend a minimum of four weeks of camp, and complete the CIT Application. Please keep in mind that there is a selection process, and being in the correct grade level does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Click below to apply for the CIT Program.
