They will take part in ropes courses, team builders, leadership training and have a great overnight camping experience. Along with all that the Shalom Institute Camp has to offer, the CITs will ride the train, take mountain hikes and go to the beach. The CIT team builder is a great way for your child to get prepared for their responsibilities as a JCC Camp Chai CIT.

Our camp consists of four, 2-week sessions, plus an extra 1-week only session. Any interested CIT will need to commit for a minimum of 2 sessions (does not have to be consecutive) and can choose to do all 4 sessions if space permits.
