Participants in the Campers in Leadership Training (CILT) and Growing Outdoor Recreation Professionals (GORP) are considered camper/leaders and pay a fee to take part in these programs.

In order to progress through the leadership training levels, individuals must receive recommendations from staff and program supervisors.
