Leadership Training Program FAQs

What do the CT and Helping Hands programs entail?

CTs are most typically rising 11th graders, and they spend one session at Camp learning and practicing the ins and outs of counseling, teaching classes in multiple activity areas, and planning all-camp events as a CT family. Helping Hands are typically rising 12th graders, and they spend one session at Camp in a service role, doing the hard work that makes Camp such a great experience for kids! They apply for and take on a specific job, such as dishwasher, lodge assistant, office assistant, or helping behind the scenes in an activity area.

How long does a CT or Helping Hand spend at Camp if they are accepted into the program?

Applicants are accepted into one session, either First Session or Second Session, and spend only that session at Camp. View the session dates here for the upcoming summer.

What is tuition cost for the CT Program and is Financial Aid available?

Tuition for the CT program is half of the regular camp tuition. Yes, Financial Aid is available for families to apply for after their child is accepted into the CT program for the upcoming summer.  View the Financial Aid application here.

Is there a tuition cost for the Helping Hand Program?

No, the Helping Hand program is tuition free and the Helping Hands themselves are paid a stipend for their work at the end of the Session.
