Our Future Leaders

Our Youth leadership programs provide an opportunity for young men to become tomorrow’s leaders. The CIT program is a 5 week Youth Leadership program for campers that are currently in or have completed 10th grade. The program is designed to help campers in the transition to counselor and to develop leadership skills which can be used in school or in the workforce. The CIT experience provides in-depth training in skill development, child development, group dynamics, conflict resolution and more. Each CIT lives in a cabin with up to 7 other CITs. The CITs are supervised and mentored by the CIT Director. There are plenty of opportunities for CITs to enjoy camp programs and special events. CIT’s typically interact with a large range of campers and staff during their stay. Our goal this summer will be to continue their great training program in a COVID safe environment. As a group, they will be a tight knit pod and will learn to navigate safety precautions with camp engagement.

Our trips program has been postponed due to COVID for summer 2021.  We look forward to bringing the program back in 2022. The trips program is typically a 1 week youth leadership adventure program for campers who are currently in or have completed 9th or 10th grade.  Campers head out into the Vermont country side to explore our natural resources and learn valuable leadership skills. They learn conflict resolution, time management, patience, self awareness, and much more. There is limited room in both programs. Look for more info this fall.
