Teen Leadership Programs

Ages 14-17

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.

 Assistant Counselor (Ages 16-17)

After completing a session of CIT, teens looking to fully realize their leadership potential, the Assistant Counselor (AC) program is the final step in Camp Wabansi's leadership progression. 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.


To be considered for the AC program:
  1. Print and complete the        AC APPLICATION.
  2. Directly submit your application to the Associate Executive of Camping Services:

   3.  We will contact you for a phone conversation and discuss your opportunities ot serve camp upon              selection.  There are no fees associated with the AC program. 


Thursday Overnight Stayover Option

Campers can choose to spend the night at camp on Thursday night after the Family Night program for an additional fee of $30.  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!  Parents consistently tell us that spending the night at camp with friends and counselors was a great step of independence to take with their child.
