The purpose of the Camp Highlander’s Counselor in Training and Leadership Program is to provide an enriching experience for teens, while enabling them to maximize their individual potential to transform into dynamic leaders, capable of making a positive difference in the world!
Camp Highlander’s Counselor in Training and Leadership Program instills the skills and knowledge necessary to become successful servant-leaders, adults, and model citizens.
At Camp Highlander our staff lead, love and serve. Our CIT and Leadership Program is designed to facilitate the transition from camper to staff while equipping the CITS to join the incredible Highlander team one day. This leadership program will not only prepare them for the counselor role, but give them valuable life skills and leadership techniques for college, careers and future workforce. These skills include:
Our goal is for graduates of this program to be committed, hard-working, servant-hearted individuals. We accomplish this by guiding teens through a program filled with service, training, team building and FUN.
CIT’s will have leadership training, participate in service opportunities while also enjoying on and off-camp activities.
The CIT class will continue their leadership training and service while shadowing the Camp Highlander Staff. CIT’s will join our cabins for the day and learn the in’s and out’s of CH staff roles and responsibilities and enjoy playing with campers at all our amazing activities. During this session, CITs will shadow a variety of ages to learn and grow as a counselor. In addition, CITs will have the opportunity to participate in Color War competitions and coaching.
