Former Perkiomen Pines campers are welcomed and encouraged to participate in our CIT program, where they enjoy the “best of both worlds”as they are campers transitioning into roles of more responsibility.

With the support and guidance of the CIT director and Perkiomen Pines staff members, our aim is to prepare our CITs to be employed by Perkiomen Pines Day Camp in the future while still providing fun and recreational camper activities.

CITs will reach Perkiomen Pines objectives by the following means:

  • Hands on learning by shadowing and assisting Perkiomen Pines staff to manage a bunk
  • Observation of staff teaching and coaching techniques
  • Participation in activities, special events, and meetings
  • Discussions/Info sessions with peers, mentors and supervisors
  • Evaluation, feedback, and assessment from peers, supervisors and self
  • CIT’s learn important life skills such as leadership development, teamwork, communication and cooperation.

The spirit and energy needed for this role ultimately helps build management skills and self confidence!
