A C.I.T. is a Girl Scout Senior Ambassador who participates
in our extremely successful Leadership Program directed
toward her future in camp counseling, teaching, or other
human service fields. Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa is proud to
offer one of the most successful C.I.T. programs in the nation.
Based upon the resources of Girl Scouts of the USA, this
Leadership Program is completed over a two summer period.
Grade 10 - C.I.T. I: The focuses are experience in responsibility,
program goals, contemporary issues, leadership styles,
child development, outdoor living skills, group dynamics,
conflict resolution and program interaction with campers.
Grade 11 - C.I.T. II: The skills learned in the first year, augmented
by program immersion with campers, are expanded
upon through skills specialization, safety practices, and
leading activities. As a further progression, individuals who
successfully complete the program may apply to work
at a Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa camp as an “Apprentice
Counselor.” This allows these outstanding young women
the opportunity to be employed at an earlier age.
C.I.T. II pricing is significantly lower in order
to assist families with girls going through the entire program.
If you have the means to do so, please consider making an
additional contribution to our campership fund
to help off-set the actual cost of camp as reflected in C.I.T. I.
