Join the CIT Program

Join the CIT Program – Nashua Valley Council has earned an enviable reputation over the past years by providing boys with a great camping experience. The CIT program builds upon the leadership skills learned via the Scouting program. Through the CIT program, Scouts will be prepared to take on leadership roles within their Scouting unit.

Scouts will participate in the program for 4 weeks:

  • All Scouts will participate at Camp Wanocksett during training & camp set-up from June 24-30. (School Snow days can be worked around)
  • Scout will then participate in one week of the Boy Scout program, one week in the Cub Scout program, and one final week of their choosing.

The total cost of the program for 2017 is $275. This includes all room & board. This amount is not due until acceptance to the program has been confirmed. Fees will be collected at the CIT orientation meeting in May.
