Senior High Leadership
Senior High Leadership
(SHL) is the first step in the journey to becoming a Camp Wright
Counselor in Training. This session helps campers develop skills
important for work at camp, peer mediation, school and community
leadership. A trip to a ropes course, a service project, and
evening program planning for our Junior Campers are highlights
of this special session. Our program focuses on servant
leadership as Jesus taught. For campers having completed grades
9 - 11.
in Training Program
Counselors in Training (CIT) are young adults
who have completed 10th grade who volunteer during resident camp
sessions. CITs work with our staff for two sessions each summer. During one session, they work with our kitchen crew and participate in programs in the evening. During the second session CITs work together with counselors to facilitate all
aspects of camp life. Under the supervision of our adult camp
staff, CITs lead activity blocks, facilitate cabin life and work
with younger campers. This approach gives our CITs lots of time and opportunities to learn many aspects of our camp culture, participate in our staff community, learn, serve and have fun!
Camp Wrighters who have
completed the Senior High Leadership program and have completed
10th grade are eligible to become Counselors in Training. An
application and three references are required for consideration
in this program. Applications are mailed to previous Senior High
Leadership participants in December. Individuals who have not
completed SHL and are interested in CIT positions should contact
Director, Julia Zahn. CITs are
supervised by adult staff at all times. In many cases, CITs are
able to use their time at Camp Wright to fulfill student service
