The CIT program serves as preparation to become a counselor at Camp Hertko Hollow in future years. A limited number of CITs will be chosen to attend camp during Kids Week and will be assigned to a young cabin of campers. CITs are not staff – but have the opportunity to be mentored and learn directly from staff, help run activities, and learn through observation. CITs should be enthusiastic and positive role models for campers.
