This is a 6 week opportunity for experienced campers and graduates of our LIT session to learn how to transition from camper to the responsibilities of a Counsellor. They will acquire the skills and the practical experience to successfully role model good leadership, to develop effective relationships with campers and to successfully lead activities, including a day-long canoe trip. Skill proficiency and an ability to teach swimming, paddling, and other activities will be expected at the end of the 6 week session.
Applications for CIT spots begin in January of each year. Campers who successfully complete CIT will be eligible for employment at Hidden Bay the following year.
This program is ideal for those wanting the opportunity to work as a Counselor. There are a maximum number of spaces available. If interested, please fill out the registration form and send in with a current resume.
Campers must be 16 by the end of the calendar year (born in 2004 or earlier), and have completed LIT to be eligible for CIT.
Why a Leadership Camp?
Small by design, our camp has a unique approach to leadership. We create an environment of trust, by first building positive relationships between campers. These connections allow for campers to feel safe to discuss topics, reflect on their goals and recognize others’ achievements. They know that their voice is being heard; their ideas listened to.
Campers become facilitators of change in their own lives. We create responsibility in youth by guiding them to self-monitor around expectations, rather than rules. These skills prepare our campers to confidently conduct themselves in a courteous, respectful and responsible manner not only at camp, but also at home and at school.
Know that your child will come home with a new view on life.
