What Should CITs Bring to Camp?

Your experience at camp will include meeting missionaries, Bible Study, games, hiking, swimming, making new friends and so much more! Camp is special because it allows CITs to come away from the distractions of everyday life, gain leadership skills, have fun, and be focused on God and how He is working in their lives and the lives of people all over the world!

In order to have the best experience possible, we strive to remove as many distractions from camp and the campers as possible. This includes leaving all of the following at home: cell phones, iPods, tablets, electronic games, or other electronic devices. We have found that bringing these items to camp distracts the camper and others around them from all that God wants them to experience.

  • Khaki shorts and brown belts for CIT uniform
