5 Next Generation of Mentors

Leadership Development

This program is for teens going into 11th or 12th grade. Participants spend the first week in a C.I.T. training week, learning various leadership theories and servant leadership examples, while living in the camp community, playing and building relationships. The next two weeks, the C.I.T.s are putting their training to practice with hands-on experience in camper cabins. This program is challenging, transformational, and bridges one’s experience as a camper into a staff member, all while giving participants experience that will positively impact their lives as a young person.
