CIT applicants will be interviewed by Lisa and will receive mailed notification if accepted into the CIT program. This is an excellent leadership opportunity to add to any student's resume!

The cost for members is $150/week and the cost for non-members is $155.00/week. The training program week will be held during the June 1-4 camp session from 9-3:30. CITs can be dropped off at the museum as early as 7:30 am and picked up as late as 5:30 pm. Before and aftercare is free to CIT families as well. CITs are required to participate in a minimum of five weeks during the museum's "Science is Everywhere" Summer Camp schedule. The five weeks include the June 1-4 camp for training, and the other four camps can be chosen by the CIT.

*Please note CIT applicants must be at least a rising 9th grader, ages 14-17.

Because the program is competitive, and spaces are limited there is a deadline for applications of April 16, 2021. Any applications received after the deadline will still be reviewed, however, availability and/or likelihood of acceptance may be significantly reduced.
