1. Parents can decide in advance if their child will have the option to extend

Our Madrichim in Training (MIT) program is available to entering 12th graders. Participants will explore activities designed just for them and never solely be responsible for other children. At the same time, they’ll get a hearty introduction to the life of being a counselor, apprenticing with seasoned pros to see what the madrich/a life is all about!

The referring camper must attend camp to get the tuition credit. If the referred camper cancels, the credit will be removed.
