This summer’s CIT’s will be paid a stipend for working at the following camps:
- American Girl
- Girl Power

Teens who earn the CIT award are given a special opportunity to serve as champions for the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. As they serve in their roles high school girls can help grow awareness of Girl Scouting’s aim to deliver fun with purpose: enjoyable and challenging activities that grow girls’ leadership in their daily lives and in the world. Participating in the CIT Training Camp will earn you the first part of the award, working with girls throughout camp sessions will complete the requirements.

You will deepen your understanding of what leadership development means and get excited about guiding others! You too can learn to be a champion mentor that delivers fun with purpose to younger Girl Scouts.
As registration opens on April 15, 2013 for summer activities listed in the 2013 Summer Guide, Program Aide Positions will be open for registration on a first come-first served basis.
