The second step on our leadership development track, Colorado Mountain Camp’s Adventure Educator-in-Training Program gives entering 11th and 12th graders a summer full of hands-on adventure, learning and leadership. At the end of four weeks, you’ll leave the program with newfound skills (including American Red Cross First Aid and CPR certifications) and the confidence to make a profound impact on your school, community and future profession.
EITs earn a small stipend, working with the CMC staff at either Mt. Evans or Windy Peak, and a select group of peers to keep every aspect of camp running smoothly. You’ll roll up your sleeves to help out with camp maintenance, plan activities and expeditions and assist in the office or kitchen. And of course, you’ll spend part of every day adventuring. From supporting instructors as they lead activities to buddying up with younger campers as they learn, you’ll put your outdoor skills and leadership abilities to work in countless meaningful ways.
With daily opportunities to create, contribute and forge lasting relationships, you’ll grow more in four weeks—and have more fun—than you ever thought possible, building a strong foundation for future living, learning and work. Space is limited to 10 total participants per summer, so apply early! We give preference to campers who have completed our Teen Leadership Program. Learn about our Pin Program!
