Camp de Benneville Pines is searching for its next generation of leaders!

A residential camp experience designed to provide leadership opportunities that prepare teens to become successful staff members at camp, as well as develop skills that will help them in life! CIT’s focus on activities that develop leadership and teamwork skills. The CIT program includes:

  • internship in all aspects of a counselor’s job
  • participation in camp programming
  • training sessions on such topics as:
    • basic child development and behavior management
    • counseling techniques and best practices
    • communication and leadership, environmental stewardship
    • social justice development in the camp community


Living in their own CIT community, trainees study and practice skill enhancement in the morning hours, and assist counselors with campers in the afternoon. The CIT program is just the right mix of hard work and serious responsibility with outrageous fun and friendship building with fellow CITs.

Camp de Benneville Pines is searching for its next generation of leaders!  And it just may be YOU or someone you know! Successful participants will come away from their training with an invaluable skill base that will serve them well at home, in school, and in their own community.
