Become a Volunteer (CIT) at OVY Camp 2019!

Volunteers at OVY Camp are called CIT's, which stands for Counselor-in-Training. You do not have to be a former OVY camper to become a CIT at OVY Camp. 

You are eligible to be a CIT if you are at least entering into 10th grade next year.

CIT's play a crucial role in our week-long summer camp program. They are responsible for the safety and well-being of a cabin group, assisting Counselors during daily activities and games, supervising pool and mealtime, and facilitating a cabin skit. 

Being a CIT is a challenging, yet incredibly rewarding experience. CIT's learn invaluable leadership skills while making new friends and exploring the natural environment. Many CIT's have said that their week at OVY Camp was a life-changing experience. 

This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in building their resume AND having fun at the same time. 

Also worth noting, many CIT's end up getting hired on as paid staff after gaining experience as a Counselor-in-Training.

*We are only accepting online applications for the CIT position starting in 2019! Please create a profile on our online system, which will include the application questions. If you were a camper in 2018, you can use the same profile to apply as a CIT.
