Campers-in-Leadership-Training (CILTs)

Building Leaders for the Next Generation

Campers in Leadership Training (CILTs) is a transformative two-week program for 16 year olds that fosters young leaders. Through the four pillars of self-awareness, servanthood, faith, and collaboration, CILTs cultivates leaders of consequence who go on to transform their communities and their world.

“CILTs was an incredible opportunity to stretch myself to the limit. It inspired creative thinking and self innovation while teaching me to work as a leader with people I will never forget. The friends I made in CILTs are my best friends today. There is no other program where 40 kids grow so much in only two weeks. Team CILT has made such an impact on my life that I will forever cherish that last summer as a camper.” – CILT camper

The Four Pillars

The Secret Sauce of Leadership Development

Our transformative program is built on the four pillars of self-awareness, servanthood, faith, and collaboration. With intentional, challenging programs that teach these values, we provide young leaders with the knowledge and hands-on experience they need to make a difference back home in their own communities.

Self-Awareness

Great leadership starts by understanding yourself. Our program helps campers explore their strengths and weaknesses, their personalities, and their role in a group setting. Through specific, honest feedback from loving counselors, campers learn how they impact those around them, and how they can excel in any situation.

Servanthood

Great leaders help others succeed. With a servant mindset, CILTs undertake a number of service projects here at Camp and in our local community. In addition, CILTs shadow overnight counselors and day camp counselors to learn more about how our counselors act as servant leaders to their campers.

Faith

Like all of our programs, the CILT program helps our campers grow in faith. From devotions geared toward teenagers gaining independence, to the opportunities to lead a chapel, to special praise & worship sessions, CILTs teaches campers how to live out the “I’m Third” motto as leaders. 

Collaboration

Collaboration is a key skill for 21st century leaders. That’s why CILTs helps leaders grow both as individuals and as members of a team. Through numerous team-building activities and discussion sections, CILTs learn how to provide and receive honest feedback, and how to work with others who think differently. 

 

 

CILT Programming

Opportunities to lead and grow

Mornings are spent growing as a CILT group. Through CILT-exclusive team building activities, camp adventures, service projects, and more, CILTS grow closer as they learn about themselves and each other.

Afternoons are spent with “adopted cabins.” CILTs shadow overnight camp counselors during afternoon and evening activities while acting as role models for younger campers.

Additional activities include

  • CILT-exclusive Team-building activities at The Leadership Center
  • Leading chapel as a CILT session
  • Creating an original CILT song and cheer
  • Service opportunities at Camp and in our local community
  • Shadowing day camp counselors for a day

Relationships that Stick

Cultivating Family

The CILT program isn’t just about leadership. Friendships made during CILT sessions are some of the strongest bonds formed at Camp. With 40 campers and eight counselors and staff who live together, learn from one another, and spend purposeful time together, close friendships form and significant growth occurs. Through team-building activities, devotions, service projects, and more CILTs get to know each others’ stories, passions and strengths as they build each other up with encouragement and support. These are relationships that stick.

 

“CILTs is the reason I can see God’s love. All of these amazing leaders are brought together by our faith. My time at camp last summer is still impacting my life today.”
