The CIT program is for participants who have completed the 11th grade and are genuinely interested in acquiring the skills necessary to be a camp counselor. The group will participate in a 4-day/3-night backpacking trip in Rocky Mountain National Park, a one day raft trip on the upper Colorado River, a Leave No Trace awareness course, a community service project, and training sessions similar to our staff training. The final two weeks are spent observing and assisting in the leadership of regular camp programs.
Counselor Wrangler In Training (CWIT) will do the same program outlined above, but when split out to the program areas, CWIT’s will be assigned to work at the barn helping run lessons and trail rides.
This program involves an application and selection process that requires initiative and dedication from the camper.
