|Program Staff, CIT and Counselors
|Unfortunately, we need to ask that program staff, counselors-in-training (CIT) and counselors pay some fees to help cover the costs for food and lodging.
The fee for program staff, CIT and counselors is $150.
Scholarship funds can be requested. WE DO NOT WANT ANYONE TO MISS CAMP DUE TO LACK OF FUNDS! Please call the office or Michele Mellott with special concerns. We will do all we can on a case by case basis.
