Camper In Leadership Training (CILT)
Every summer, some senior high campers have the opportunity to serve at camp as a Camper in Leadership Training. The goal of this program is to give some of our older campers a look into the life of a counselor as they spend the week with a cabin (or group) of young campers. Under the supervision and guidance of the Program Director and Summer Staff, CILTs will be given opportunities to lead games and songs while they assist with camper supervision and Bible Discovery. To help our campers build responsibility, CILTs are required to fill out an application and attend the Sunday volunteer training to better prepare them for their week of camp. There is also a CILT Training event in May that the prospective CILTs will attend to introduce them to their experience. The CILT Coordinator will work closely with the CILTs while they are here at camp so that they can continue to grow their skills and camp knowledge. CILTs aged 14-17 can come serve programs with campers in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade. CILTs aged 16-17 can come serve programs with campers in 3rd through 7th Grades.
