A participant must demonstrate appropriate maturity for her age, have leadership potential, a positive attitude, and be able to work well with others. Junior CITs can access all of the basic camp programs, (e.g., swimming, exploring nature, arts & crafts, and relaxing around campfires.)

This is a two-week program, but girls go home over the weekend. No application, interview, or references required.

This four-week course will concentrate on the fundamentals of the Girl Scout Camping program, counseling techniques, leadership, self-esteem, and provide skills that are necessary when working with younger campers. Participants, ages 15 to 17, will plan and assist with the supervision of activities, as well as assist with instruction supervised by senior staff.

The CIT program is a recognized training program throughout the country and is a recommended prerequisite for summer camp employment. CITs will receive certification in First Aid and CPR and their CIT pins upon successful completion of this program.

Prospective CITs will receive an additional application packet that must be completed prior to the start of the program. Girls that complete the full CIT program will be invited back the last week of camp as a Camp Seven Hills Intern.
