HOH is for advanced riders (riders who are comfortable trotting) who just can’t get enough of horses!

Discover yourself and what you are truly capable of during this four-week program! The program is designed to challenge campers to be their best and grow spiritually. Supportive and experienced staff help Leadership Trainees (LTs) participate in an extended backpacking trip, canoe packing trip, ropes course training, rock climbing, an overnight solo, and so much more. LTs grow socially and learn about managing group dynamics, backcountry living, how to be an effective leader, and how to be a part of a team. The LT program, while not a mandatory part of the Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program, is a valuable stepping-stone and foundation for the CIT program.
Available: June 29 - August 2
Ages: 16 to 17
Five Week Program: $2,600
*Campers must complete an additional application for the CIT program, available on the CLC CampBrain registration page and due MARCH 31
The five-week Counselor-in-Training course prepares campers to be successful staff members in cabins, in teaching activities, or in other areas of the camp program. The CIT program is both a job training program and an educational experience. CITs participate in daily classes divided into four key areas: Staff, Camp, Campers, and Program. Topics include working as part of a team, responding to others’ needs, time management, decision making, public speaking, and Christian Science healing. Most importantly, CITs have the opportunity to daily put what is learned into practice in a supportive Christian Science environment. If you are interested in the out-of-doors, working with children, making new friends, and growing in your understanding and application of Christian Science — join us this summer. Make a difference — challenge yourself and others by being part of this year’s class.
