Training Future Leaders
The Counselor In Training (CIT) Program at Eden Village West offers rising 11th graders a unique opportunity to develop leadership, group facilitation, and program implementation skills while building lifelong friendships and community.
There is no other program like a Counselor In Training program. In what other program will you eat dinner blindfolded, learn about leadership fundamentals and child development pedagogy, plan a silly evening program for 150 people, and support bunk life and program areas all culminating in a beautiful California wilderness excursion? The program is designed to train, challenge, and nurture emerging adults as they ready themselves to take on more leadership inside and outside of summer camp. During this journey CITs will receive guidance and feedback from experienced staff that will help them grow immensely. Simply put, your CIT summer is a special summer.
