Camp Bull Run: CILT

YMCA's Camper in Leadership Training, or CILT, program at Camp Bull Run is a day camp teen leadership program balanced with fun.

With experienced staff as mentors, teens gain leadership experience and serve as active role models for younger campers. Teens also participate in games and team building with their peers.

Activities include field trips, service projects and special events.

Once assessed, swimmers wear a swim band indicating where they are allowed in the pool. If a child is assessed as a non-swimmer, the Y will provide a Coast Guard approved life jacket.
