We also offer a Leadership In Training (L.I.T.) track for our oldest male and female campers (ages 13-16). This is their opportunity to prepare for future summers in the Counselor In Training (C.I.T.) program. More details >> 
          
Safety
 
All our land staff are trained in CPR and First Aid. Staff also receives specialized training and instructional methods from professional organizations such as the Camp Archery Association, the National Rifle Association, Camp Horseman's Association, Association of Challenge Course Technology and the American Camping Association. Safety and quality instruction are paramount.
 
We work with local Charlotte athletic clubs to enhance our staff training in all general athletic activities. We strive to create an atmosphere for campers to learn a new skill, fall in love with a new sport or grow in a sport in which they already excel.
