learn about BECOMING A summer CouNSELOR IN TRAINING (CIT)!

Bay Leaf Kitchen's CIT program allows teens with a passion for the culinary arts to further develop their kitchen and leadership abilities. Bay Leaf's CIT program offers a unique opportunity for teens to engage with their peers, further advance their kitchen skills by working hand in hand with the pros, and feel empowered throughout the whole summer. 

CIT's at Bay Leaf Kitchen receive training both during an orientation in June as well as during the sessions they sign up for. CITs are tasked with a host of responsibilities including generating camp curriculum, leading instructional lessons for campers and fostering a sense of community throughout the summer.

For teens interested in attending camp (as a camper, not as a Bay Leaf Kitchen CIT) please visit our summer camp information page HERE.

 

HOURS: 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Wednesday at a commercial kitchen in the Bayview District of San Francisco plus a Thursday night camp-out sleepover at a local farm leaving Thursday at 9:00AM and returning Friday at 4:00PM
AGES: 13-17
COST: At Bay Leaf Kitchen, we are committed to making camp a part of every kid's summer, regardless of their background. The rate for a week as a CIT is $875 and includes 2 days of training in June, transportation during the farm overnight, snacks, lunch and extra samples to take home for the whole week. By purchasing a CIT Summer Package, you will receive a discount on each additional week as a CIT. Financial aid will be granted for Low to Moderate Income families in amounts ranging from 25% to 100% off the price of tuition, based on household income.

We encourage all families for whom our camp tuition might present a financial obstacle to apply for aid by clicking HERE
