On this page we have put together some simple answers to some very common questions that CiT's have about camp. We have similarly done so in other sections of the website so you may need to go to the Why Hawkeye section get some of other questions answered.
We have not tried to answer all potential questions and know that it means a lot to speak with someone live so please, give Jessica a call in the office at (781) 315-1297 and she can talk to you more about the CiT Program and how it fits for you.

How is the schedule different for CiT’s?
The CiT schedule is different in most ways from that of campers. CiT's wake up at the same time and attend meals with every other community member but beyond that are on their own schedule. CiT's go to sleep later, have opportunities to opt out of an afternoon activity once every two days, and are often off at their Apprenticeships for an entire morning or afternoon.
As described on the "Program Description" page CiT's have group trainings each and every week, apprenticeship responsibilities, dish room duties, special activity planning, and meal prep each week.

No, CiT’s may not bring phones or any other electronic device to camp.

Resume/Interview Skills/Written Evaluation/First Aid & CPR Certification
Do CiT’s get a day off like counselors?
