Cultivating Confident, Powerful Leaders
Deep down we know that teens want to contribute. This is a real place where they can test life skills, learn more about themselves, and bring skills onward into their future. Though we hold a high bar for these teens, they also have an incredibly fun week.
Should my teen be a CIT or just participate in a teen camp?
If your teen thinks they want to teach kids someday, if your teen loves learning about nature and experiencing it firsthand, and if your teen wants to step into the maturity of being others-centered and service-oriented, then this is the program for them! CITs often reference their time at LES on college applications, resumes, and job applications. We have written countless letters of recommendations for CITs. Some students credit the CIT program with gaining them college scholarships and the skills to feel confident in their first job.
