Campers in Leadership Training
For campers age 14 and older, we offer a summer camp program that affords extra, specialized training in leadership development. This program challenges, instructs and encourages the development of leadership skills in our older campers and in turn serves as a real asset and complement to all of our traditional activities. The C.I.L.T. Program, or Camper in Leadership Training, allows older campers the opportunity to participate in unique experiences relating to responsibility and helping others meet the same challenges that they must meet themselves. Our CILTs gather daily to discuss the details of effective and ineffective methods of leadership. Being a CILT involves:
- Daily leadership workshops
- Involvement in various camp projects
- Opportunities to lead, including campfires and organized activities
- Group discussion, instruction & evaluation
Through these activities, campers learn the skills necessary to become effective leaders, and serve as role models to their peers and younger campers. Offered every session, this program is optional, though highly recommended.
