    The CILT Program is a leadership program for 9th and 10th graders and provides special training and hands-on leadership opportunities in different camp activities, with a variety of age groups. Our high school students gain leadership skills while also participating in many of the teen camper activities.

    Each week CILTs get a chance to assist with a group of campers between 4 to 10 years of age. The counselors and staff give ongoing feedback and evaluate their progress.  In addition to leadership training, CILTs also enjoy fun camp activities with their own age group.
