Teen Outdoor Leadership Program

Are you an aspiring camp counselor or an older camper looking to take your leadership skills to the next level? Apply to our Teen Outdoor Leadership Program (TOLP)!

TOLP expands the Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program from a summer camp experience to a year-round leadership development program. In addition to the summer CIT program, TOLP offers the Teen Outdoor Leadership Summit in the spring, Teen Outdoor Leadership Conference in the fall and meetings throughout the year to keep program members engaged!

Please note: Admission into TOLP is a prerequisite for CIT I & II programs. 



Applications for TOLP open on January 8, 2024 and close February 16, 2024. For more information, check out our FAQ page here. When you are ready to apply, you can access the TOLP/CIT I application here and the TOLP/CIT II here.

Riding Instructor-in-Training

Volunteers are an integral piece to the Circle C Equestrian Center. Our most popular volunteer program is our Riding Instructor-in-Training program (also known as RIIT program) for girls 13 years and older. Adults with or without a horse background are also welcome to join the training program.

As a Riding Instructor-in-Training, you will learn how to teach others about horses, as well as how to teach about grooming, leading, riding and caring for horses. In return for your help at the barn, you will have the opportunity to ride, broaden your knowledge of horses and meet friends that share a love for horses too!


Being a Riding Instructor-in-Training can be hard work. Volunteers generally help with weekend riding programs. Some of their tasks include: feeding, cleaning stalls, grooming horses, tacking, leading horses on trail rides and assisting in teaching ground and mounted lessons. Volunteers can work as little or as much as they would like. Assistance is usually needed Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. during the school year.
