I understand that if I am selected to be a Leader in Training at the Camp Sionito Senior High Camp that I am to follow the instructions of the director and my mentors. My primary function will be to care for the campers. I understand that my job is to spread the love of Jesus Christ to campers and to help them become lifelong campers. I am willing to give up my cell phone for the week of camp, and I will follow all of the rules given by the director. If I choose not to follow the directions of the camp director, I realize I will not be invited back as a Leader in Training at future camps, and I may be asked to leave the camp.
