Counselor in Training Program | Camp Galileo


Counselors in training experience Camp Galileo in awesome new ways, mentoring younger campers, making camp magic and building lasting innovation and leadership skills alongside their CIT team.

The perfect bridge between our K–8th grade camps and 16+ summer intern positions, Galileo’s CIT program lets rising 8th–10th graders experience all the innovation, fun and friendships of summer camp with a behind-the-scenes twist.

Why Be a CIT?

  • Make friends—and lifelong memories—with your fellow CITs
  • Mentor younger campers and support staffers in action
  • Create camp magic through ceremonies, games and more
  • Learn to lead as you build essential leadership skills
  • Have big summer FUN with hands-on design challenges


Guided by a dedicated CIT leader, counselors in training move through three engaging, innovation-sparking rotations every day, punctuated by the fun of all-camp ceremonies and games.

Team Building & Leadership

Get to know your CIT cohort by starting every day with "Would You Rather" questions and collaborative team challenges, then spend dedicated time learning leadership skills like goal setting, giving and receiving feedback and building a growth mindset.

Mentorship & Camper Support

Shadow a group of K–5th grade campers, observing and supporting Galileo staffers in action, mentoring younger kids and getting personalized coaching from experienced instructors.

Camp Magic & Design Challenges

Help make camp magic in all kinds of ways—devising a new Water Day station, leading a skit, planning a flash mob, crafting flair—plus tackle hands-on design challenges with your CIT team, from engineering launchers and golf courses to putting on a mini Olympics.


Although pricing varies by location, each CIT week costs $150 LESS than a K–8th grade week at your local Camp Galileo.
