Camper in Leadership Training

2022 Camper in Leadership Training Program 

Persons who are eligible for the CILT program are a rising Junior in high school during Summer 2022.  To receive the application link and online reference link, parents or guardians must register for the 2022 CILT Program through our website (the REGISTER FOR CAMP button at the top). Note that this registration only gives access to the application link and does not guarantee placement into the program. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with the application link and the reference form link which you should share with your camper. Please have your camper fill out the application.  Registration begins October 21, 2021 and applications are due November 23, 2021. Applicants will receive a response regarding their application in mid-January 2022 via email.

2022 Sessions:
Session 1 (June 11-July 2)

Session 2 (July 2-23)

Session 3 (July 23-August 13)

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 $1,993. If accepted into the CILT program, financial aid is available on a limited basis to those in need.
