CITs (Counselors in Training) are required to attend Outdoor Leadership camp (offered in Summer). Please call our office (919-489-0900) before registering if your child has not attended Outdoor Leadership camp, but is interested in becoming a CIT. For all those kids who just want to see what's over the next hill, this is the camp for them! Umstead is massive! This camp will be all about hiking and exploring, but also taking time to stop and play games and tell stories. Kids in this camp might enjoy hiking a mile or more to find the most ultimate lunch spot, learning how to use a compass and topography map, practicing safe water filtration, as well as searching for evidence of Umstead's past. Some might think of this as a light intro to backpacking as this camp will venture far and wide departing after opening circle and returning in time for closing circle. This program allows for drop off between 7:45 am - 8:30 am. CITs are expected to stay at camp between 8:30am and 4:30pm.
