CIT Program

The True North Philosophy

At True North Sports Camps we are committed to creating the best possible experience for every camper and great staff are vital to achieving that goal! While developing the campers' athletic skills is certainly important, our core focus is creating a positive environment for our campers, allowing them to have fun and forge lasting friendships.

About the CIT Program

At True North Sports Camps, we believe that summer camps provide youth with the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to succeed as leaders both at camp and beyond. The mandate of the Coach in Training program is to provide participants with the opportunity to develop communication, coaching and organization skills and to take on a leadership position in a supportive and inclusive environment.

There is no fee to enroll in the CIT program. Please note that CITs do not receive a salary. Participants will be eligible to receive community service hours for their time at the camp.
