Leadership Programs for ages 14 -17
In addition to our regular camp experience, we offer teens a
Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program. This program offers the opportunity
for teenagers to gain leadership experience while enjoying the full
camp program. CITs are included in pre-camp training, staff meetings,
and CIT meetings. They are personally led by the Directors with conflict
resolution case studies and leadership skills.
This program is great for a teenager who is friendly, can maintain a
positive attitude, and who likes working with younger children. CIT’s
are assigned a group of younger campers and will help the Senior Leader
lead the group, assist with activities and organize games.
The number of
CIT’s accepted to this program is limited to 8. CIT’s pay the full camp tuition in their first year. Returning CIT's pay a discounted tuition depending on the number of years.
There are no additional charges for the leadership training.
Teens interested in the CIT program are encouraged to contact the
camp office at (310)392-3100 for more information and availability.
To be eligible for participation, CIT’s will need to:
- Be at least 14 years of age
- Have attended the sleep-away as a camper in a previous year, or have camper experience at a previous camp.
The LIT Program is geared for the older teenager (age 16-18; ) who is
