Teen Leadership

LEADERS IN TRAINING PROGRAM

This leadership program is designed for 14-15-year-old campers to help them prepare for their role as a future CIT. Working closely with the LIT director, they will learn all aspects of camp while shadowing various counselors and learning what it takes to become a wonderful and memorable camp counselor.

LIT's will assist in planning and implementation of evening activities, assist in specialty areas, assist with meal set up and clean up and will still participate in their own camp activities each day. All assignments and activities will be closely monitored by the LIT director and camp counselors.
 
Problem solving, effective communication skills, interviewing skills, leadership and teamwork are just some of the skills to be learned. 
 
While the program is designed for future CITs, it will benefit any teen who wants to become a better leader in their school and their community.

Our two-week LIT Sessions, offered June 21-July 3, July 5-18 and July 19-August 1 are:  

$1,200 for facility members
$1,350 for program members

 

COUNSELOR IN TRAINING PROGRAM

This leadership program is designed for 16-17-year-old campers to help them prepare for their role as a future CIT. Working closely with the LIT director, they will learn all aspects of camp while shadowing various counselors and learning what it takes to become a wonderful and memorable camp counselor.

CIT's will work with staff directly to execute the overall camp operation, are provided leadership guidance to complete tasks, but may work more independently on a project than LIT's, and shadow lead camp counselors to understand different roles and functions of being a camp counselor. CIT's will have limited participation in camp activities, unless training in a specific area such as wrangler riding or lifeguarding.

Problem solving, effective communication skills, interviewing skills, leadership and teamwork are just some of the skills to be reinforced from the LIT program.
 
While the program is designed for future counselors, it will benefit any teen who wants to become a better leader in their school and their community.

Our two-week CIT Sessions, offered June 21-July 3,  July 5-18 and July 19-August 1 are:  

$950 for facility members
$1,075 for program members

Camp to me is an opportunity to leave all your worries behind and enjoy life. To make new friends. To explore the things I like. To get to know nature and myself. Camp makes me a better person.
