Our Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program aims to provide summer camp leadership opportunities for 10th-12th grade students. 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.

 

***It is NOT required to have prior attendance at a Forkhorn, Survival, or Wildlife Camp to be a CIT. While an interest in the subject is helpful, the focus will be more on leadership training.***

 

If interested in being a CIT, please fill out the application first. The Summer Camps Coordinators will contact you after receiving the completed form. 

Rate: $175 to cover room & board
