Counselor-in-Training*, Grade 11
Leadership development is an important component of the teen experience at Camp Twelve Trails. Teens will participate in community service initiatives, modeling for other campers the impact they can have on the environment and the world around them. Through workshops and first-hand experiences under the guidance and support of professional camp staff, they’ll receive powerful training and valuable tools. Camp Twelve Trails will help its CITs develop the confidence and skills they will use for a lifetime, in an atmosphere that both supports and challenges them, and that understands the power of the peer network experience.
*Future Twelve Trails employment is not guaranteed.
