The Counseling Leadership Team

Most of our leadership team were campers at Camp Fox in the past. Each leader is put through a rigorous training program prior to attending camp no matter how many years they have been attending.

Counselor in Training Program

Inaugurated in 2012 with our former "Junior High Camp", our CIT program is for 16-17 year olds who want to learn first hand how to become inspiring leaders. 

Each CIT is assigned a leader to shadow and a cabin of boys or girls that they assist in caring for. Although it is not guaranteed, CITs are highly considered when recruiting for new leaders each summer. CIT’s must have a positive evaluation written by the CIT Directors from the previous years training in order to be eligible to become a leader.

CITs are paying campers.  Their individual camp experience is our primary concern. We want our CITs to have the best week ever and therefore they participate in a few activities not offered to the “general camper”. These activities include a night snorkel tour, kayak trip down the Catalina coast, hike to the interior of Catalina Island, and late night campfire gatherings.

CITs are granted community service hours for their work at camp simply by emailing us the form the requesting entity is wanting filled out. We will then do the rest! Unfortunately, we do not provide generic community service sheets.

If you are interested in coming to camp as a CIT, please send us an email through the Contact Us page for an initial questionnaire to be filled out and one of our CIT's directors will be back in touch with you. Spaces are limited by gender and age so don’t delay! 

The Rag Program

The Raggers Creed

I would be true, for there are those who trust me;
I would be pure, for there are those who care;
I would be strong, for there is much to suffer;
I would be brave, for their is much to dare.

I would be friend to all – the foe, the friendless;
I would be giving and forget the gift;
I would be humble, for I know my weakness;
I would look up and laugh and love and lift.
The Raggers Creed is the foundation for our Rag program that we run at camp. Campers twelve and older may participate in receiving their blue rag by setting challenges for themselves to work on throughout the year. There are seven stages of the Rag program, each being held for at least a year or more. Holders of the Rag may work on challenges they have set for themselves and when ready, move on to accept the challenges of the other colored rags.

The following is a list of the rag colors, each of their specific goals and the minimum age to accept these challenges:
(Eligible age – determined by age on December 31 of this year)

Blue: Loyalty to one’s best self and the Raggers Creed (12)

Silver: Dedication to a well rounded life (13)

Brown: Dedication to service (14)

Gold: Caring and understanding of others (15)

Red: Sacrifice of time, talent and personal will (16)

Purple: High and noble living (18)

White: Lifetime dedication of service to youth (21)
