Over the past 67 years, tens of thousands of “Alonimers” have called camp their “home away from home.” Each summer’s CIT group carries on longstanding Alonim traditions and creates new ones while they learn together, lead together, give back to camp together, and create community together.
Summer 2020 is now your opportunity to join this remarkable legacy. We are delighted to invite you to apply for your CIT summer.
Spending a summer at Camp Alonim as a CIT is an especially meaningful and memorable leadership experience. Being a CIT is very different experience from being a camper. CITs follow a unique schedule in which they are apprentices in various activities and receive training to inspire and care for campers. They work together to design and lead some of our most popular camp programs. In the educational component of this consequential summer, CITs explore various topics of interest and learn what it means to be emerging leaders in the Jewish community. The CIT program is well-known for forging lifelong friendships and being very fun.
Current tenth graders (entering 11 graders in the Fall of 2020) are eligible to apply for the CIT 2020 program. The program will take place June 15 – August 9, 2020. Those admitted into the CIT program, must commit to being at camp for the entirety of the program. If a school calendar conflicts with these dates, you must tell us in writing by the time an application is submitted about the potential conflict. To do so, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Acceptance to the CIT program is not guaranteed. Several factors will determine acceptance, including prior performance at camp (if applicable). It may be necessary for some applicants to be interviewed. Applicants may apply at any time (depending on space availability). Applications will be processed on a rolling basis. Applicants must then be accepted into the CIT program in order to enroll. Please contact us regarding acceptance deadlines.
The tuition for the CIT program is $5,045 for the entire eight-week summer. Financial aid is available; you will be able to apply for scholarship once you enroll. Note: Participants eligible to receive “One Happy Camper” grants for 2020 are able to apply their grants to CIT tuition.
