A cabin counselor lives in a cabin with their campers and 2-3 other staff, partially separated in a “counselor’s section” of the cabin. Each counselor will either lead or assist in an activity that matches their skills during the day. The main focus of a cabin counselor is to pour their lives into the lives of their campers; it is both hard and extremely rewarding work.
Each position has it’s own requirements but all cabin counselors must 18 and ordinarily have finished their first year in college. The exception is those serving as Junior Counselors. All CIT’s must be 17, out of camp, and not yet in college. Each position requires a submitted application and a formal interview.
