CIT / JW Ministry & Leadership Programs

The Counselor-In-Training (CIT) and Junior Wrangler (JW) Ministry & Leadership Programs are for high school students, Grades 9-12, who want to be leaders at camp and in their schools and communities.

Note: Grade levels are based on current grade at the time of application. For the well being of the program, campers, and staff, we do not make exceptions.

Participants learn the ins and outs of camp ministry and skills to be effective leaders, and have the opportunity serve one or two weeks at camp during the summer. JWs service includes added focus with our horses, assisting with care for the horses, trail rides, and our Horsemanship Camp.

The program includes a required weekend of training (Friday-Sunday, June 15-17, 2018). The schedule for which weeks CITs & JWs serve during the summer will be finalized in June, so participants know which weeks they will serve at the start of the summer. We do our best to accommodate scheduling requests.

Many students who participate in this ministry also attend High School B.A.S.I.C. Summer Camp (June 10-15, 2018). We encourage this. It is why our CIT / JW Ministry & Leadership Training is scheduled the weekend immediately following High School Summer Camp – campers just stay on through the weekend.
