Counselor-In-Leadership Training Program (CILT): Ages 13-15
Junior Counselor Training Program (JC): Ages 16-17
We are grateful for campers who've aged with us and are now teens. Due to limited space on board, we are now reserving a limited number of spots for teens who are strongly interested in learning and working toward becoming a future boating camp counselor. If your teen is motivated by this goal, then read on….
If you have a teen who is “gung-ho” about boating, fishing, paddling, swimming, and outdoor adventure and who can grow to become a role model for young children, then our training programs may be a great fit.
We encourage applicants who are already passionate about these subjects and thrive on challenge and hard work. Our goal is to help CILTS and JC’s grow personally, professionally and socially by increasing self-confidence, leadership and accountability. Boating is the perfect canvas to build character, decision-making, life skills, and prepare to enter the workforce.
Our goal is to help CILTs and JCs grow personally, professionally and socially. Through open and constructive feedback, they will build skills in leadership, communication and work ethic. We take the training programs very seriously and reserve the right to remove someone from the program if they do not meet expectations (e.g. they don’t want to be there), or violate our policies and procedures.
