Camper in Leadership Training Program

Do you want to be a role model this summer? Do you love the Christian Camp Experience? Is learning to work with children something you would like to invest your time in? Will you be 14 or 15 years old this summer? 

 

If so, our Camper in Leadership Training (CILT) Program is designed with you in mind. This program will help you gain leadership experience and serve as a role model for younger campers while assisting counselors and staff with summer camp activities. CILTs will grow in character, confidence, and leadership led by experienced Program Directors and Summer Staff members serving as mentors. By learning to lead campers in games, songs, and Bible Discovery, CILTs get to be a part of making camp fun! To help CILT campers build responsibility, they are required to fill out an application and attend a CILT training event to prepare them for their week of camp. 

To apply to be a CILT

  1. Complete the CILT Application (link on our website)
  2. Ask 3 people to be references
  3. Register via our Google doc for a training (link on our website)

After Gretna Glen Staff has received your application and completed reference forms we will be in touch to register you for the camp program you would like to work with. If possible, be ready with 3 programs that work with your availability so we can place you with the one that works best for you and camp. Please know that most CILT’s will commute each day to camp and work with our day camp program. We will have very limited opportunities for CILTS with overnight programs in 2021. Be ready with your program preferences when you arrive at training.

CILT Training

All CILTs must attend a training event. Training will help prepare the CILTs for the experience they will have during their week at camp. We will learn songs, skits, andgames along with important safety protocols and procedures for making camp a fun and safe place to be. Come ready to spend the day learning and growing with the other CILTs and Volunteers. Please register for an event after completing your CILT application (details will be sent upon completion of your application).
