Teen Leadership Camps

Leaders in Training and Counselors in Training (LIT and CIT) programs are designed to shape the next generation of leaders by creating experiences where youth feel a sense of pride and commitment to their camp community and Rock Springs Ranch.

Leaders in Training (LIT) – Rising 10th & 11th graders

  • Through a series of group discussions, team building, initiatives, and challenge course participation we explore each camper’s inner potential and leadership abilities. During their week LITs will also spend time devoted to “Larger Service.” Service projects teach the importance of sharing your talents and generosity with others to show caring for your community, country, and world. This program is a great way for teens to level up their camp experience!

Counselors in Training (CIT) – Rising 12th graders

  • CITs are given the opportunity to assist or lead camp activities throughout their time at camp. Through spending time with other CITs, they learn what life is like as a camp counselor. This program is designed to allow teens the opportunity to provide leadership to younger campers while also establishing their own community and camp experiences.

“As a CIT you have the responsibility and freedom of being a camp counselor, while still having the fun of being a camper. The relationships I made were the best part of the week. After the day was over, we sat on the front porch of our cabin and talked about what happened during the day. We could have solved all the world’s problems sitting out there and eating trail mix.”
