Summer 2014 - Develop your leadership potential while growing closer to Christ. The CIT program is a leadership training experience for high school age campers entering their sophomore or junior year. It's a minimum of a two-week commitment. Your first week is training while attending the High School Leadership Camp (June 22-28, 2014) and the second week is of practical experience during Day Camp (K-4) or Special Friends Day Camps (adults with disabilities). CIT's are invited to volunteer beyond the two-week program. Arrangements can be made with the Day Camp Director.
