Campers In Leadership Training (C.I.L.T.) is a two year program for young ladies in 9th, 10th, or 11th grade with emphasis on supervised leadership training and personal spiritual growth. These ladies will be challenged in ways they never dreamed possible and grow in knowledge, skills and confidence throughout the program. Upon completion of the program, graduates will be encouraged to join our staff. This intense program will prepare young women not only to serve at camp, but in their schools, churches, communities and throughout the world.
||At the end of summer, there is always a pile of campers belongings left at camp. This is an expensive waste for our campers (and their parents!). As a way to target the problem of lost belongings and a large lost and found closet, we are encouraging our campers to label all belongings.
