The Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program is a fun and challenging three-part leadership course for young women interested in leading girls in the outdoors. Each participant must be prepared to work as a responsible member of her team, live in a rustic environment for an extended period of time and put the needs of younger campers first.

CIT 2 is a program focusing on behavior management and how to work with younger girls in a camp setting.  Girls entering 11th grade and older and have completed CIT 1 are eligible to apply.
For the second level of CIT training, focus on skills needed to work with children at camp.
Learn behaviors to expect from campers and how to manage them, work as a team with staff.  You will have one session of training and then one session of working in the unit with the girls.

WIT (Wrangler in Training) is a specific program to prepare girls who have completed CIT 1 to work with the Horse program at a camp setting.  Girls entering 11th grade and older and have completed CIT 1 are eligible to apply.
In this program you will learn what it takes to be a Wrangler and work with horses and campers during a week of camp.  Girls enrolled in the WIT program must have previous horsemanship experience and pass a riding test. You must be able to saddle, bridle, groom and control your horse at a walk, trot and lope with a balanced seat. WIT is a leadership program, not just a riding program. Girls will also spend time exploring their own leadership skills and learn how to work as a member of a team and take care of children.

This program is an overnight camp for girls entering 11th grade and older.  Campers stay Sunday - Friday at Camp E-Ko-Wah.

Transportation is provided from the Mary Nichols' Family Leadership Center in Oklahoma City.  To ride the bus please arrive at 11:00am-12:00pm on  Sunday.  Pick up on Friday is at 5:00pm. The cost is $25 to ride the bus. 

Every girl participates in creating her session as she and her group choose which activities they would like to do during the week in addition to the program theme of her session.  All campers will get a well-rounded camp experience, including community living, singing, camp chores, cookouts, campfires and swimming. Campers entering 4th grade and above will have the opportunity to do archery, challenge course and canoeing. All programs are weather permitting.
