Gold Leaders Program (CILT)

Campers in Leadership Training (CILTs) participate in leadership lessons focused on working with youth and learning general job skills.

Year-Round Youth Programs and Camps for Summer 2020 Cancelled – Due to COVID-19 considerations, Rec Sports has cancelled all in-person youth programming (all summer camps as well as year-round Archery, Recreational and Competitive Gymnastics, Skate Classes, and Swimming Lessons) for summer 2020. For more information, read our FAQs.

About The Program

Campers in Leadership Training (CILTs) participate in leadership lessons focused on working with youth and learning general job skills. The program concentrates on building the participant’s communication skills within both large and small groups, professionalism, critical thinking, problem-solving, confidence, discipline, and initiative.

From activities such as lesson planning to mock interviews, the campers develop the necessary skills to become a part of future Blue camp staff or obtain employment elsewhere. A typical day for a CILT begins with a skill-based workshop, where they practically apply skills in a camp setting, as well as other activities throughout the day.

CILTs are considered campers in a leadership training role, and therefore pay a fee, depending upon the program and session. Participants receive an evaluation of their workplace strengths and skills, coaching on how to maximize those strengths, as well as a UC Berkeley Leadership Certificate upon completion of the program.

Gold Leaders Program (CILT) – Explorer Camp

Campers develop their leadership skills while working with participants at our Explorer Camp. Explorer Camp is located at Strawberry Canyon Recreation Area and is home to the camp for 4-6-year-olds. CILTs at this site work with younger children in a slower-paced environment. Explorer Camp uses smaller ratios in order to meet the supervision needs of the youngest campers, therefore CILTs are able to get to know more of the campers and staff team.

Ages & Eligibility

Campers must be ages 14-16 (by December 1, 2020) in order to register for this camp.
Price: $350

Location: Strawberry Canyon Recreation Area

Gold Leaders Program (CILT) – Blue Camp

Campers develop their leadership skills while working with participants at our Blue Camp. Blue Camp is located at Golden Bear Recreation Center and is home to the camps for 7-13-year-olds. CILTs always work with campers that are at least two years younger than they are. Blue Camp is larger in size and space, it is active and fast-paced. CILTs in this program learn how to be flexible and take initiative in a bigger system.
