If you are graduating from high school this year, we encourage you to complete and submit a Staff/CIT application! On the application where it asks you what position you are applying for – mark CIT.  Every year several  OYO campers who graduated from high school apply for the 2-year CIT program.  As a previous camper, you have a wonderful foundation to be a great counselor and leader!
OYO requires all staff/non-CITs  to be at least 20 years old. Ohio requires anyone working with children to be at least 2 years older than the children you are working with. OYO follows a 3-year age difference to be safe, which means an 18 year old CIT can only work with campers that are 15 or younger. OYO staff that work with the 16- high school (up to age 19) camper age group are all 22 years old or older.  
If you are interested in applying to be a CIT, visit the POSITIONS page for more information.
