This program is for campers who are ages 14-16 years old. You will have a group of up to 8 campers with whom you will explore various aspects of Leadership with. This program is being developed for our older campers who still want to be at camp, and want to work towards becoming a camp staff or developing their teaching and leadership skills. Each week you will work with these campers to develop their camp knowledge, teaching skills, nature knowledge, and leadership skills. You will lead a variety of teambuilding activities, a leadership survey, and hikes and explorations around the property. The CIT’s will also help develop a few activities each week at camp for the younger campers and help set up all camp games.  This program will challenge you as a staff member.
