Counselors in Training (No Leadership in Training in 2016)


Through the Leadership program, it is our intent that all individuals develop the necessary skills and maturity to become effective leaders and youth counselors. The goal of the program is not only to teach participants about leadership qualities but to foster those qualities in themselves in a safe and fun atmosphere. The experience in the Leadership program is one that participants will be able to use at camp as well as back home in leadership roles at school, on teams, in the workplace and in the community.

Counselors in Training (CIT)

A 3 week program for campers age 16 by June 1st, 2016

Through first hand experience working with campers, CITs will develop a close bond and gain skills for potential advancement as a Camp Jorn staff member. The highlight of the session is an intermediate level six-day-five-night wilderness trip. On the trip, participants learn how to serve others and practice their leadership skills. CIT’s are also part of the counseling team, spending time with our day camp and resident camp programs. CIT campers must apply to attend this program. Interested campers must complete an application and secure written references from non-family members. If you have any questions please call the office at 715.543.8808
