CITs (Counselors in Training)
The MTC CIT program runs during the first session of summer camp, where high school students learn to teach and work with children. CITs choreograph dances for the show and plan games and crafts for campers to enjoy. CITs also share the responsibilities of staff members, including cleaning, organizing, load in, and strike. 

Planning and Training: To prepare for camp, CITs will train and plan with staff in May and June to choreograph dances for the show, plan games/crafts, and learn strategies for working with children. 

Selected CITs do NOT register for camp through the Y. The CIT program is open to students entering grades 9-12 in fall 2024. Students must be an active member of MYT. The number of CIT spots (between 8-12 spots per session) is determined by camper enrollment. As a result, not everyone who applies will be able to participate, nor does past participation guarantee a spot this year.

Whether CITs will volunteer for both rising star sessions or only 1 depends on enrollment. 

Applications are due April 22nd. Accepted students will be notified via email by May 11th.
