Galileo Counselor In Training (CIT) is even better and more exciting this year with new formats and options for junior camp counselors! 7th through 10th graders will love participating in week-long programs that encompass a variety of exciting tracks and leadership development activities with interactive support from Galileo staff.
From mentoring young campers to setting up and leading new ceremonies and celebrations, each Counselor in Training will go behind-the-scenes and participate in leading a memorable journey for Camp Galileo.
With 8 different journeys to choose from, CITs can pair two journeys/week with the option to mix-and-match their experience over multiple weeks! Counselors in Training will participate in a dynamic choose-your-path style schedule. In addition to learning from amazing Galileo educators, CITs will spend part of each week gaining new experience in a series of Journeys. Each Journey is designed to allow junior counselors to dive deeper into areas that interest them most while gaining valuable hands-on experience.
