Counselor in Training Leadership Program for Summer Camp
The Camp Pillsbury Counselor in Training Leadership Program is designed for our older campers interested in transitioning from camper to counselor or learning what it takes to become a strong and effective leader. The CIT Leadership program encourages campers to work together as a team to acquire the skills necessary to become confident leaders and positive role models, both at camp and in their communities. At our premier summer camp in Minnesota, campers who participate in this program walk away with the mindset and learn the communications skills necessary to become the best leader they can be.
