CIT II/Gesher is the ideal camp for the teen interested in making a difference in the life of a child. Teens spend the summer at the JCC camp getting on the job training and experience working with children.

CIT’s learn the basic information on youth relationship skills, child development and the techniques for leading activities.

CIT’s also go on great trips to places such as Great Adventure, Camel Beach, Dorney Park, and a two day/one night overnight.

CIT’s are required to attend training and orientation sessions prior to and during the camp season.

Special options include: door to door transportation, and a hot lunch program
