Rising Juniors

Looking for a way to spend your summer having fun and making a positive impact in a place you love? Our Leader in Training (LIT) program was developed as a path to take you from CSM camper to CSM cabin or trip leader. The LIT program focuses on leadership development and giving high schoolers who love camp (that’s you) an opportunity to learn the skills necessary to become a camp staff member. You will gain diverse skill sets, impact-driven leadership experience and incredible memories of summers in the mountains with new friends and mentors.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. After applying, our director will reach out to schedule a 10- to 15-minute interview to talk about the program and what dates work best for the candidate. You must be accepted into the program before registration occurs. It is a competitive process, and spaces are limited.

Please register for LIT below.

Our LIT program is the first step along the camper-to-staffer path. It is a two-week program for upcoming juniors that focuses on leadership development in the camp environment. During your two weeks at camp, you and other LITs will gain knowledge about yourselves, learn how to develop and run camp activities and help out in a variety of areas at camp. This two-week program will also include a four-day backpacking trip that will focus on outdoor leadership.
