Morning Explorers

Camp Sunrise Lake is offering a new program this year, Morning Explorers, allowing your camper to start camp as early as 8:15. Campers will be completely supervised and led in fun games and activities each morning. Our goal is to make camp more accessible to everyone and accommodate working and busy parents.

CIT Program

The CIT (Camper in Transition) Program began in 2014 for growing campers to take on a leadership role within camp. The CIT Program provides a safe opportunity to explore their developing need for independence and growing minds by providing new experiences and added privileges that they would not have as a general camper.
 
This year, there are a few changes to the program that entrust the CITs with more responsibility and more freedom. CITs will now instruct and lead activities throughout the day and partake in CIT-only training and activities.
 
CITs are given the unique opportunity to have the fun of camp while learning about helpfulness and responsibility. CITs work closely with staff and counselors, and while it may seem that they are preparing to be counselors, they’re truly learning how to become great leaders and role models beyond Camp Sunrise Lake.
 
CITs take part in a mandatory CIT Training in July. This all day training session orients them to camp, works on leadership skills, and prepares them to assist their campers and lead activities.
 
At Camp Sunrise Lake, each CIT:
* Is paired with a group of campers, who they assist and lead throughout the day
* Leads an activity, teaching and instructing young campers in a subject they feel comfortable with
* Has the opportunity to shadow staff members, including activity leaders, counselors, and the Camp Director
* Participate in CIT-only trainings and activities
 
This program offers the opportunity to develop and expand leadership skills, become a role model for younger children, assist in motivating others, and become part of a high-performing team, all while having fun!
