2020 Camps

Bison Camp and CIT Program (Rising 6th-12th Grade)

We have many options for your Rising 6th -12th graders. These formative and transitional years are a unique time for this age group, so we have some fun and compelling options. See tab below for full information on all our options.

Our Pre-Week Leadership program is open to all 6th-12th graders. This invaluable week will provide CPR/First Aid and Water Safety certifications as well as life skills workshops. This CIT Leadership Program is not a requirement to sign up for CIT weeks during regular camp sessions, but it certainly helps prepare for it.

We've heard you and understand that some middle schoolers still want to have some camp fun. We've brought in some innovative camp options for rising 6th-8th graders (Bison) as a counterpart to our ever popular CIT Jr program. Whether you register for one week, mix and match with the CIT program or do a full summer of camp options, your child will certainly have a great time!

Both CIT Jr and CIT programs are an amazing way for teens to gain hands-on experience working in camp as well as be the camp's journalists. No application is necessary for our CIT program, just click here to register. There are no minimum or maximum number of weeks.  CITs can register for one week or all eight weeks.
