Camp Wright's resident camp programs provide opportunities to participate in a variety of activities, including boating, sports, archery, arts & crafts, drama, dance, nature study and more. Specialty programs throughout the summer provide a special focus on a particular interest or program. We balance longstanding Camp Wright traditions with new and innovative activities each session. We are proud to provide a traditional, unplugged camp experience: cell phones and tablets are not allowed, there is no electricity in our cabins, meals are eaten together with bunkmates and counselors, we even sing some of the same songs that our alumni campers recognize from their camp days. Our motto, learning to live together in a Christian way, flows throughout our program as campers are encouraged to make connections with God, with one another and with the natural world around them.

Senior High Leadership
For Campers in grades 9-11
For many campers, Senior High Leadership is the first step in the process of becoming a Counselor in Training and staff member at Camp Wright. Campers participate in service project,planning programs for younger campers, shadowing counselors and traditional camp activities. SHL encourages participants to develop skills and practice leadership in a fun, supportive environment.
Counselor in Training Program
Counselors in Training (CIT) are young adults who have who volunteer during resident camp sessions. CITs work with our staff for two sessions each summer. CITs have opportunities to explore different aspects of the camp operation. CITs will work in the kitchen, work together with counselors to lead a cabin group, and facilitate programs for our campers. Two veteran staff members serve as CIT coordinators, who meet regularly with CIT participants, provide feedback and help with camper to staff transitions. This approach gives our CITs lots of time and opportunities to learn many aspects of our camp culture, participate in our staff community, learn, serve and have fun!
Campers who have completed 10th grade are eligible to become Counselors in Training. Our CIT Application can be accessed through the camper application in CampMinder. Select "CIT Sessions" as your session choice when registering. Campers who are interested in transitioning from camper to CIT and Counselor should complete our Senior High Leadership session. This program is specifically designed to ease the transition into leadership and more responsibility prior to becoming a CIT. More information about our CIT programs can be found here. Feel free to call or email our Associate Director if you have any questions about the CIT or Senior High Leadership programs.
