Learn Important Skills and be
Part of our Leadership Program!
Do you enjoy working with children? Are you interested in becoming a leader in your community or working at a summer camp? Have lots of enthusiasm, camp spirit, energy and willingness to help others?

This program is a challenging way to gain self-confidence, learn new skills, and acquire leadership skills while obtaining hands on experience.
CITs and LITs live together for the week. Part of the day they attend sessions in group development, problem solving, communication, and teaching skills. The rest of the time they volunteer at different camp program areas such as Tree Climbing, Camp Counseling, Nature Programming, or Waterfront.

Overnight EITs train and serve as volunteers at the Equestrian Area and come in the morning and work with our Equestrian Staff. In the afternoon they volunteer at different camp program areas such as Counseling, Group Games, or Waterfront.
Overall, this is an excellent way to gain important skills that will transfer well to any career you choose.
PLEASE DO NOT apply for the program if you are not focused on learning new skills and helping others.

Good references from past counselors, teachers or community leaders are REQUIRED.
