Wednesday: Honesty and Conflict

On the third day of camp we will be exploring honesty and conflict.

Thursday: Feeling Powerful

On this day we will be working on the skills we have built so far and we will be increasing our horsemanship skills in preparation for riding on Day 5. In order to feel powerful we need to be able to calm ourselves, be a leader, and communicate honestly. We will use all of these skills in an activity with the horses, concentrating on communication, trust and self-worth.

Friday: Intimacy and Trust

The last day! On this day we will be riding all day long. We will be bringing in all of the tools we have built since Day 1 and we will be celebrating all we have learned and done in the 5 days.

It’s a great experience for anyone who wants to go into teaching or coaching. As a counselor, you’ll walk away from the summer as a better problem solver, communicator, and team player. It will also develop your leadership skills.
Most importantly… working at Camp is FUN!

During two weeks at camp, each group of LIT's will venture out on a 4-day/3-night backpacking trip, participate in activities around camp, live in a tipi village, complete a service project, and work with our day-camp program.

The SIT Program provides campers who have completed the 10th grade (but are not yet 18) with an incredible opportunity for skill development in an outdoor setting. The participants will embark on a 5 day/4 night backpacking trip in the Rocky Mountains, a 4 day/3 night rafting trip on the Upper Colorado River, and mountain biking adventures in Fraser, CO while gaining valuable skills and instruction. Like the LITs, SITs live in the Tipi Village while they are at camp. Participants will complete 1-2 service projects around camp or in the community.
