CiTs & JCs
A DYNAMIC LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
PROGRESSIVE TWO-YEAR EXPERIENCE
The Camp Hawkeye Leadership Development Program delivers training and experience, direction and mentoring, as well as opportunities for application of leadership within the context of a two year progression. Year one consists of a 4 or 8 week experience in the Counselor in Training (CiT) program. Year two is a 5-week experience as a member of the Junior Counselor (JC) group.
BRIDGING THE CAMPER-TO-STAFF TRANSITION
This in-depth and carefully designed program bridges the transition from camper to staff member and provides the foundational elements to each participant's growth into a great counselor. The changing expectations of moving from camper to staff (that is, from "kid" to "adult" in the context of our camp community) can be challenging. The guidance and mentoring provided by the Leadership Coordinator supports a positive and productive transition.
