You need not aspire to be a camp counselor to enjoy this high adventure program. The first part of this program features preparation and execution of a 3 day wilderness backpacking trip through the mountains of Allegany State Park. Campers experience low-impact camping, outdoor living skills and the interdependence of a team. The weekend stayover portion of this session includes a chance to do laundry, attend mass, and have supper out. The second week of the program, campers take part in many of the regular CT clubs* and activities, especially the Awards Programs**. There will be a beach trip, leadership training, and service learning. For those who are interested in employment there will also be some optional “staff training” clubs.

Fourteen year old campers are eligible to choose between regular or Pathfinder programs during Sessions C-F. There is only one cabin of Pathfinder Boys and Pathfinder Girls each week. Cabin Mate Requests are therefore irrelevant in this program. Pathfinders often participate in separate evening activities from the Traditional (younger) campers. The same is true for CITs.
