CIT Program (Gesher)

One of the goals of our camper program is the development of leadership skills. We hope that as our campers move towards their final summer they will learn how to play a part in the creation our Camp community. The capstone of that effort is our Counselor in Training (CIT) program. Campers in their final summer (Gesher) have the opportunity to learn what it takes to be a great staff member at Camp Ramah. CITs learn programming, camper care and other valuable skills while being trained and supervised by carefully selected staff mentors. Our Gesher campers often cite their time as CITs as among the most rewarding part of their camp experience. It’s a wonderful way to get ready for what we hope will be the next stage of our campers relationship with Camp: as staff members!
