At Lonehollow, the goal behind everything we do is for our campers to have an unforgettable experience, and to discover, empower, and inspire their greatest selves while finding adventure. We have designed our Leadership Programs with these key components in mind to enhance our campers’ experiences and complete their full-circle journeys.
Lead Climber (10th Grade)
At its core, the Lead Climber program is a two-night out-of-camp trip designed to promote campers’ potential by taking them out of their comfort zone and pushing them to create an environment supportive of teamwork and perseverance. Lead Climbers also participate in leadership training throughout each two-week session and have the unique opportunity to speak at Closing Ceremony.
Leader-in-Training (11th Grade)
As our oldest campers, LITs spend their last year at camp still active participants in the full crew experience, with more activity customization, classes designed to develop and improve their leadership skills, and the opportunity to earn 35+ service hours over the course of each two-week session. In keeping with our full-circle concept, we want campers who complete the LIT program to become Lonehollow’s next generation of leaders.
Counselor-in-Training (12th grade)
The CIT program at Lonehollow is designed for students entering their senior year of high school. Through the CIT program we allow former campers to complete the transition from camper to counselor that began in the LIT program. CIT are held to the same standard as Lonehollow Guides, participating in the complete application and interview process. While at camp, CITs live in a cabin with campers and teach activities during the day. All CIT positions are paid positions.
