CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: The Holiday Hill NEST program grows 9th and 10th graders into leaders. Many of our oldest campers eagerly stay on, often becoming the next generation of kid-loving counselors. But NEST is not just counselor training, so we welcome all who seek a very educational and motivational program. NEST (Nurturing Experiences for Staff Trainees) — • 2-year progressive experiential education course • Develops natural leadership qualities by teaching basic camp leadership skills • Creates well-rounded, thoughtful, caring and competent staff members with a broad range of human relation skills, outdoor education techniques, sports, games and camp programming ideas. • Benefits young people regardless of their interest in camp counseling.

These young people are placed with camper groups to gain experience alongside regular staff.

So, why not do similar things for families and adult groups in Mansfield Center, Storrs, Willimantic, Manchester and the surrounding areas?
