Camper in Leadership Training

2021 Camper in Leadership Training Program 

Persons who are eligible for the CILT program are a rising Junior in high school during summer 2021.  Applications were assessed in November 2020.  If you are inquiring about this program, please contact:  Campkanata@campkanata.org.

Session 1 (June 12-July 3)

Session 2 (July 3-24)

Session 3 (July 24-August 14)

The CILT program involves three co-ed groups who attend Camp for a three week experience. CILTs take part in sessions that teach leadership development, Camp skills, group management techniques, service, team building, and counseling skills. CILTs receive a weekly coaching session on their performance and behavior both as a group and as individuals with the Trainee Coordinators.

Expectations for CILTs are high, and the application process is competitive. In addition to the application and references you submit, we will also take your previous Camp history into consideration, including recommendations from previous staff members. During the summer, trainees are expected to model correct behavior for campers and must maintain a positive and enthusiastic attitude. Participants gain great insight into Camp goals and philosophy. Many of our summer staff went through the Trainee program and continued their camping careers with us. Keep in mind, however, that a long-term camping history at Kanata does not in itself guarantee a spot in the program, nor does participation in the program guarantee a future position as a CIT or camp counselor.

The total cost for the three-week program is $1,845. If accepted into the CILT program, financial aid is available on a limited basis to those in need.
