2022 Summer Camp Leadership Programs - CIT/WIT 1

Sun Jul 03, 2:00 PM - Sat Jul 23, 10:00 AM CDT

Join this leadership program if you are interested in working at camp as a counselor or as a barn staff. In this foundational program, all C.I.T./W.I.T.’s will first learn the foundations of working with children, planning and implementing programs and expanding your team building and outdoor skills.

You will create a portfolio of information, songs, games and other program ideas to take with you. When you are not learning the ins and outs of camp, you will work with your choice of program or barn.

W.I.T.’s must have horse experience either through a camp setting, lessons, or living on or working at a ranch. In W.I.T. Session I, barn time will include early morning feeding, grooming, and saddling the first year and helping only with one or two programs a week. C.I.T.’s must have a desire to work in a camp setting with young girls, teaching them skills.

Your time away from training the first year will include program time in units or with daily activity choices a couple of times each week along with learning office, trading post, pool and kitchen duties. Both C.I.T.’s and W.I.T.’s are required to learn the basic foundations of camp’s programs, songs and games.
