All campers accepted in the 2020 Outdoor Adventure Program will have priority to enroll in the 2021 OAP.

Q: Can I switch my CILT into a different session for 2021?
A: Due to limited openings in the CILT program, we will only place 2020 Enrolled CILTs in the same session for 2020. If your child has a different session preference, we recommend you apply for the same session to secure a spot. You may email us your preference and we will consider any changes based on availability beginning July 1st.
