COUnselor In Training Program

Covid-19 Update as of May 15, 2020

We aim to protect the health and safety of our campers, CITs, staff and families. Due to the world-wide pandemic, Camp Rise KC will not offer an in-person camping session in 2020.

Past CITs & CITs who have already enrolled for 2020 will be given access to an online platform where they can converse with peers, share songs and stories and participate in virtual games, activities, challenges & awards. CITs will also receive a Rise Surprise Box which will be delivered to them on July 15th.

CITs must fill out their Rise Surprise Box Order Form with the email link that has been provided to you and your parent or guardian.

CIT Dates: July 14th - July 18th, 2021

Our Counselor in Training (C.I.T.) program provides teens and former campers with an incredible opportunity to learn new skills, challenge their personal growth, and build self-esteem through leadership opportunities.


The goal of this program is for you to develop real-world, outside-the-classroom skills which you can use throughout life, at home, in jobs and in your community. It’s an opportunity for former campers to transition from camper to counselor roles where your training and talents are put into action. Being a counselor-in-training is a very important role at camp, in which leadership skills, good character, integrity, patience, and self-control are nurtured and developed.

Teens ages 14-17 are eligible to apply. This is a 5 day, overnight commitment.

Meals, lodging and transportation are provided.

Camp Rise KC will provide camp gear (backpack, bedding, toiletries, etc.)

Camp takes place at the Rotary Youth Camp in Lee's Summit, MO. There are cabins, indoor showers and bathrooms, a full service dining hall and a pool.
