Leadership Program

Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program

Towering Pines is well known for its leadership program. Boys 16-17 years of age, along with having their own activities, assist daily in an hour-long class that is led by a senior counselor. Our senior counselors are trained to mentor CITs and transition them from camper to counselor. As they make this journey, CITs understand and become an integral part of the magic of camp they experienced as younger campers.leadership-program
