NEW FOR 2024



Preparing your heart to serve. For the last 25 years, Camp Celebrate has been a place where many have encountered Christ for the first time during their middle school years. Those encounters have become pivotal moments in people's faith lives and the Lord has used Camp Celebrate as a holy ground to reach His young people. Our relational ministry model has always allowed Camp to continue through service for tenth graders and beyond, realizing the year in maturity and growth that the ninth grade year brings is essential for the separation of "Camp is for the campers". We've always desired to find a way to involve our incoming ninth graders, and we're hopeful that this is a solution that will benefit those that are hoping to become leaders in the program, as well as help enrich the Camp community and grow in their faith. Introducing the Camp Celebrate Counselor In Training (CIT) program... starting this summer, 2024.


Our CIT service program is a service-leadership program designed for those entering 9th grade to experience serving Camp Celebrate through a different lens than a camper. Through participating in this program, you can grow your relationship with the Lord, learn Christlike servitude, and develop your leadership skills. As a CIT, you will have the unique opportunity to assist the counselors as they lead their cabin over the course the week, as well as participate in various tasks with the staff. During the week, you will be able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and live it out daily with the campers. Each day you will be given time in fellowship with other CITs and our staff partners, holy hour, and reflect on your experiences. As you serve, you can grow in your walk with Jesus Christ and learn what it means to be a Christlike leader at Camp Celebrate. We are thrilled to provide this opportunity to teens that can shape their walk with the Lord as we minister to our campers.
