Our Teen Leadership Programs give your teen a chance to develop their skills working with campers, their team, and our staff of mentors. Staff are specifically trained to mentor this age group. Your teen will earn community service hours toward graduation.
Counselor in Training (Ages 14-17)
Take the first step to unlocking your leadership potential. Counselors in Training (CITs) will learn fundamental leadership qualities as they engage in counselor shadowing, team-building activities, and discover how the core values of honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility build great role models. CITs will be under the guidance of the Teen Leadership Director as they gain skills that they can truly take home with them.

AC's will plan and lead camp activities, assist in the Camp Store, act as a liaison for cabin groups, accompany special groups on out-of-camp trips, and work side by side with the Camp Wabansi counselors to learn what it takes to become a well-rounded staff member. AC's are selected by application and interview. Space is limited. Applications are due by June 1st. Your teen can earn community service hours toward graduation and letters of reference will be written upon request.

After bunking down in one of our rustic cabins, campers enjoy an evening all-camp game, campfire, snack, and witness some of camp's oldest friendly legends come to life!
