Discover yourself and what you are truly capable of during this four-week program! This program has been extended to four weeks instead of two and is designed to challenge campers age 15 and up to be their best and grow spiritually.

The Crystal Lake CIT course is a 4-week training course which prepares campers to be successful staff members whether in cabins, teaching activities, or in other areas of the camp program. The CIT program is both a job training program and an educational experience. CITs participate in daily classes divided into 4 key areas: Staff, Camp, Campers, and Program. Topics include working as part of a team, responding to others' needs, time management, decision making, public speaking, and Christian Science healing. Most importantly, CITs have the opportunity to daily put what is learned into practice in a supportive Christian Science environment. If you are interested in the out-of-doors, working with children, making new friends, and growing in your understanding and application of Christian Science - join us this summer. Make a difference - challenge yourself and others by being part of this year's class. Age 16 and up. Sessions 2 & 3 (4-week program, both sessions required) Total Fee: $1300, click here to apply.
Do you love to lend a helping hand? Would you like to get some experience working at camp and a $50/week discount on your tuition? If so, then apply to be a part of our project worker program. Project Workers spend approximately 2 hours per day helping out behind the scenes at camp in the kitchen, stables, office, housekeeping, or lifeguarding. Age 14 and up. Call or email for an application.
Ages 14 and up. Participants experience camp life “behind the scenes” in the crucial areas of Kitchen, Stables, Housekeeping, and Maintenance. Several hours each day is spent working and learning how to support these areas of camp while still attending all-camp evening activities and the occasional class period. Participants will also have the opportunity to complete the Lifeguard Training Program to become certified by the American Red Cross during the session.
Participants will live by gender in cabins, or separately in the stables. This program can be done as a stand alone program or feeds nicely into the CIT program (sessions 2+3), which provides leadership experience in the other areas of camp – cabin life and program teaching. The worker program is also a good option for campers not interested in Leadership Training (LT) or Counselor in Training (CIT) but still want to “give back” and be of service during the summer. Session 1 Only $800 Discount off the standard session rate. $500 total for the program, $750 total with Lifeguard Training.
