become a cit at curious jane camp!
cit program overview
Our counselor-in-training program is open to girls entering 7th–9th grades. It is a great opportunity for girls to help younger students and to contribute and grow as part of a strong group.
In fact, I started with CJ as a CIT myself (9 years ago!) and I’m delighted the CIT program has become such a strong part of the Curious Jane experience!
This summer, we are increasing our expectations and structure of the CIT program, for the benefit of the girls who join it. Please read below for more information, and please keep in mind that returning CITs must also apply again each year.

ready to apply?
Middle school girls may apply to be a CIT, or Counselor-In-Training. Most CIT sessions are two weeks long; we have a few one-week CIT sessions. We place one CIT per classroom who helps alongside the instructor and counselor.
We have limited spots, and there is a small application process. Program fees are $300 per week for Manhattan and Brooklyn and $200 per week for San Francisco, Berkeley and Denver.
