CIT / JW Leadership Programs


Our Counselor-In-Training (CIT) and Junior Wrangler (JW) Leadership Programs are for high school students who want to become leaders at camp and in their schools and communities. Participants learn the ins and outs of camp, as well as the skills to become an effective leader.

 

How The CIT & JW Leadership Programs Work

Following a required week of training, June 11-16, CITs will be asked to serve in various camp positions throughout the summer, and JWs will serve at the stables, assist with daily duties, trail rides, and horse camp.

Student who have finished 9th grade prior to the start of summer can register to be a CIT or JW. Students who have finished 8th grade are encouraged to sign up for our high school camp. If a student was a camper at LuWiSoMo in 2016 and feels they are ready to join either the CIT or JW program a year early, contact Matt Kohler at [email protected] to discuss this possible option.

Students who have served as a CIT in previous summers may be eligible for the CIT2 or ACIT Leadership Programs (see details below).

Camp covers the cost for CITs & JWs to be onsite during the weeks they needed for programming and assigned to serve. We will do all we can to accommodate your scheduling requests. If a CIT or JW would like to stay and help during a week they are not assigned or needed, they may stay, but will be charged $90 to help offset the cost of their meals.

 

Cost & Registration

$350 for the week of training (June 11-16)

$50 refund given for completing one week of service and $100 refund given for completing two or more weeks of service. Refunds given once summer camp ends in August.
