CIT Applications

The deadline for CIT applications was June 1st. We are now extending the deadline to June 15th.

You can check out the CIT link under Summer Programs 2014

CIT is designed as an ideal transition between being a camper and
becoming a staff member. The program emphasizes the development of Christian camping leadership skills (including learning age group characteristics, planning and leading Bible study, vespers, campfires, and singing, working with special needs campers and much more. It offers a balance of formal training, mentoring, and practical hands on experience. Upon successful completion of the training period (which includes time in cabins and units being mentored by our summer staff), CIT Participants may be invited to attend a camp session in August as a Junior Counsellor, gaining further hands on experience.

You can send your applications to Camp Geddie, PO Box 34 New Glasgow, NS B2H 5E1

We hope to hear from you!

Camp Geddie Clean-Up

Every year Camp Geddie asks for support from the wider camp community to help us prepare for the upcoming summer months.  This is often referred to as our “Camp Clean-Up Day.”  The camp asks all those who are interested to come out to the camp on that special day to help us – there’s a job for everyone!  Some of the duties include, painting, putting in our canoe dock, gardening, cleaning the cabins and lodges, etc.  Plus, lunch is served for everyone afterwards!

This year, the date is set for Saturday, May 10th, beginning at 9am (with the rain date being Saturday, May 31st).  If you’re able to lend a hand, we would really appreciate it!  We would encourage youth groups, congregations, neighborhoods – all of the Camp Geddie community – to come out to help!  We would really appreciate your support!
