Teen Camp at Friendship Island

The CIT Program, In-Person and 100% OUTDOORS!

Our teen camp is designed for children ages 12 (or entering 6th grade)-15. Older teens are accepted on a case by case basis so please contact us to discuss. We call them Counselors-In-Training (CIT) because in addition to their own programming, they are each assigned a "Little Buddy" to mentor during certain camp activities. This allows each CIT the opportunity to reflect on their own social experiences through the lens of helping a younger version of themselves.

The teen social skills program is largely based on the UCLA PEERS curriculum, incorporating lessons on handling social interactions that middle and high schoolers experience (e.g., how to have conversations, handle gossip, resolve conflicts with friends, social media).
