Are you 16-17 and interested in being a Counselor-in-Training (CIT) at CWES this summer?  As a CIT you would spend a week at camp learning how to be a counselor.  This is a great chance to learn about working at a camp in the future.  This volunteer opportunity is open for each of our standard summer camps in June and July.  If interested, please contact Tom Quinn at tquinn@uwsp.edu.
