Service & Leadership Opportunities
At Ekone Summer Camp, we are committed to cultivating leadership and important skills among the young people in our community.
In 2022 there are a few sessions accepting CITs! Please see the session schedule for more details.
For campers interested in learning about leadership and giving back to Ekone, we offer a selective CIT opportunity. Most of our CITs have attended camp for a few seasons and have shown that they are hard working, a positive example for other campers, and ready to take on more responsibility. CITs are ages 13-17, and are almost always returning campers. A maximum of four CITs will be selected for each camp session (no CIT positions for Wrangler Camps, Passage Camps or Young Rider Camp). This mentorship is provided as part of the cost of camp--we consider it an investment in the future leadership of summer camp!

In 2022 we'll have la few options for for internships, typically only for youth over 16. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if this is something you're interested in!
Our Intern program applies to youth aged 16-22 seeking an in-depth volunteer leadership
opportunity at Ekone Summer Camps, usually for 3 weeks at a time. Interns will work closely
with camp staff, and participate in planning the camp program, daily decision-making, and
leading activities as appropriate. Experienced staff will provide mentorship.
This is an excellent opportunity to spend an extended period at Ekone, gain some real
experience, and build your resume or college application.
We happily provide references and recommendations for our interns, and Ekone
experience is proven to be valuable later in life. Internships are unpaid--we consider your
service to summer camp a fair exchange of learning for work.
