Check-in: 4:30 pm · Check-out: 2:00 pm

 

 

Our new Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program aims to provide summer camp leadership opportunities for 10th-12th grade students. If your camper has completed Forkhorn 3, we'd love to see them come back and mentor! They'll spend the weekend bonding, determining leadership styles, and learning the skills needed to be an assistant counselor at Eagle Bluff. Come Sunday, our CITs will be a part of the team as a supportive group co-leader. Whether they're cheering their campers on at the ropes course or chasing them as a Bonker, expect a week of fun, friends, and self-discovery.

 

Camp Highlight: As a CIT, you'll still get to take part in your favorite camp activities, plus experience a special CIT-only activity.
