"Real crossing of the Mexican border." CILT Summit

What: CILT Summit

Who: A collection of 20 HS teachers, coaches, full-time Tecumseh staff, CILT counselors and previous CILT campers

Why: As part of Tecumseh 5-year program improvement plan it's time to take a closer look at CILTs, one of camp's most popular programs, and find ways to take it to the next level

How: Design Thinking, facilitated by Eric Glanders

Highs of the weekend:

Reuniting with gal pals Jamie Z, Arielle, Ellyn, Shelby and Mel

Having a guy counselor from every single summer that I've been a CILT counselor at camp this weekend-- Eric (2008 and 2009), Beef (2010), Evan Frick (2011, we missed you Kraft), Morph (2012), Alex Allison (2013), Mike Jones (2014), Tim (2015) and Todd (2016)

Brainstorming in a whole new way

Evaluating with "I like... I wish... I wonder..."

Trying out the Human Barometer

Going to dinner with this whole gang and then to Cold Stone just like a night off

Sleepover in the TLC like DC staff training and battling in Fishbowl

Cycle of prototype, testing and iteration phases


Walking away with things to think about, ideas to develop, and tangible things that we can implement this summer for the CILTs of 2016
