JCIT Program

Are you 13-years-old?

Join our Junior Counselor in Training Program will offer 13-year-olds an opportunity to learn the skills needed to become a junior counselor with the day camp, and at the same time enjoy the camp games and sports they have grown to love. This group will have the opportunity to mentor younger campers and facilitate group activities with counselor guidance. Each week the group will earn a special off-site trip such as bowling, a movie, or mini-golf. Campers who are 13 are automatically enrolled in the JCIT program. The JCIT’s are supervised by a seasoned, adult Hun Camp counselor. Regular weekly camp fees apply. When registering for camp, full days or half days can be selected. 
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school.  Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
