Friendly Pines Camp


2019 Camper in Leadership Training (CILT) Program
If you are a previous FPC camper and will be 15 years old before August 1, 2019, you are welcome to apply for the CILT Program. Many of the CILT candidates are campers who attended camp in 2017, 2018, or both. Due to the increased popularity of the CILT program, instead of taking the first 9 girls and 7 boys who turn in their completed application, we will instead be entering everyone into a lottery. We also ask for one letter of recommendation. This is simply a one-page, typed letter from someone who knows the applicant in a professional setting.

Please have your letter writer send their recommendation to, and please note that the letter must be submitted by the deadline to obtain a spot in the drawing. Because of the nature of the lottery, late submissions will not be accepted.

**In order to secure a spot in the lottery, your info questionnaire, essay, and letter of recommendation must all be completed and submitted by the deadline.** We are giving applicants more than 6 weeks to obtain everything, and we feel as though that is a sufficient time frame to write your essay, complete your information form, and obtain your letter of recommendation.

THE DEADLINE FOR THE CILT LOTTERY IS FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16TH AT 5:00PM. Please see the links below for more information.
