LIT and CIT’s participate in a weekend long trip between their two weeks at camp leaving early Friday morning and returning to camp Sunday. Campers assist in all phases of the trip which may include equipment loading and hauling, food preparation, site set up/take down, and more. Campers are responsible for group decisions, participation, and peer cooperation. The weekend trip may be a hiking or canoe trip. Campers and staff will work together to determine the best trip for each group. No special equipment is needed for this program. Please refer to the enclosed packing list, keeping in mind the recommendations are for one week of camp. Camp does not have the capacity to allow for camper laundry needs. The extreme accident or need would be the exception. Please pack accordingly.|
