Campers In Leadership Training (CILTs)
The goal of the CILT program is to introduce campers to new skills and ideas that they can use at camp and at home. Tuition for the same price as our camper fees.
The program is a 1 week experience the allows campers to get a taste for additional responsibilities while still taking part in our traditional summer camp activities. This program is for campers looking to learn more about leadership, camp life, planning and prepping camp programs and themselves. Each CILT will be placed in a cabin with campers whom are at least 2 years younger, and are mentored by both their cabin counselor and the Teen Program Mentor, who works with both the CILTs and the JCs. CILTs will learn how to facilitate games, be a positive role model, recognize acts of bullying, and have the opportunity to practice these skills.
The training involves many aspects of camp life with hands-on experience assisting counselors in supervising and instructing campers. It is meant to provide campers with an introduction to group management, leadership, being a role model, and taking initiative.
What is it really?
The CILT program is centered around daily lessons and a pull out program. Some of their responsibilities will be: assisting with our Farm and Garden care, setting up/ tearing down the dance party, distributing the lost and found, and operating our camp store.
