Teen Camp Programs
Leaders in Training (LIT) – Entering Grade 8
Camp K’helah has a program geared especially for the rising 8th grader. We understand that these teens not only want to attend camp, but also learn to be a Counselor in Training (CIT) and Camp Counselor. This program offers a transitional experience from being a camper to a leader. Teen issues such as nutrition, peer pressure and stress management will be explored. Our goal is to foster campers’ independence and encourage them to embrace new challenges. LITs get the best of both worlds – all of the energizing activities of an exciting day camp combined with field trips and the opportunity to develop friendships with other teens in a leadership capacity.
Counselors in Training (CIT) – Entering Grades 9 and 10
Leadership training and “pre-job” experience is what teens will gain from our CIT program at Camp K’helah. Working directly with our CIT Coordinator and Senior Counselors, CITs will help plan camp-wide programs, help facilitate our Fun Friday activities, and participate in their own mitzvah projects throughout the summer.
ALL CITs must submit a one-page written essay as to why they want to participate in our CIT program, along with a completed Registration Form. The deadline is May 1, 2018. CITs will be contacted to set up a parent-CIT meeting with the Camp Director. CITs must attend staff training, as well as any pre-camp meetings to be announced. A detailed CIT Training schedule will follow.
