This three-week session is the final step in the Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program. Participants will spend the summer teaching younger campers about one of their favorite topicshorses! Theyll learn specifics of teaching barn science, caring for horses, and riding skills. Participants will also shadow barn staff, help with barn and horse care, share their equestrian knowledge with younger campers, and lead campers during other activities. This track is great for CITs who aspire to be riding counselors or riding specialists at camp.

Attendance at a virtual pre-camp training on April 28 or May 19 to prepare for their shadow weeks at camp is required.
