Counselor-in-Training CIT Program

  • The Counselor in Training (CIT) program with Zionsville Parks offers teens who’ve aged out of our traditional camps an opportunity to learn valuable leadership and real-life skills during the summer. 
  • Through guidance and support from the counselors they are working with, CITs will learn through team building, leadership training, and assisting with camp activities. 
  • This program allows CITs to experience increased responsibility and independence at camp while still enjoying all the fun that camp has to offer. 
  • Ages: 13 – 15 years
  • CIT will be considered on a first come first serve basis.
  • There will be limited CIT positions in camps for ages 4 - 8 years. No CIT positions are available in 9 - 12 year old camps.
  • All CIT are required to attend a mandatory camp training session Friday, June 2 from 9 - 11 am

CIT Applications are CLOSED for 2023

Inclusion and Modifications

The Zionsville Parks and Recreation Summer camp program is committed to being an inclusive program. We will make reasonable modifications to allow participants of many different ability levels to join our camp programs. 

With that in mind, our summer camps are not specialized or therapeutic programs. Safety of our staff and each participant is our top priority. Planning reasonable modifications may take time. The earlier we know of your need the more likely we can make modifications before the programs begin. We reserve the right to decline modifications if said modifications fundamentally alter the nature of the program or is unreasonable as outlined by ADA regulations.
