New! Counselor in Training Program

Become the BEST Camp Counselor EVER!


Interested in becoming an Empower Camp staff member? Our Counselor in Training (CIT) program teaches you what it takes to be the BEST CAMP COUNSELOR EVER! 

We will focus on developing leadership and camp skills through experiential learning, shadowing and coaching.

A typical day as a CIT will include sessions specifically designed to develop your skillset coupled with activities with our campers to put those new skills to use! This includes skill building training sessions, shadowing staff, and a service project. 

You will receive feedback from your Camp Coach and will work closely with them on developing your skillset. 

CITs be exposed to the inner workings of what happens at camp “behind the scenes” for program prep, day-to-day camp management and of course the fun stuff, like song and skit practicing!
