Counselors in Training (CIT)
The Gales Creek camp CIT program will undergo a redesign process this year and, unfortunately, will not be operating in 2017. We sincerely apologize to anyone who has been looking forward to becoming a CIT this year. We know this is a big change, but it is in the long-term interest of the camp. Our focus must be on the camper experience. Taking a year to thoughtfully redesign the CIT program will not only make the program better for the future, it will ensure we are able to meet our commitments to our mission.
