Imagine spending the summer of your life at Island Lake and going on a teen tour, as well. For all of our CIT’s entering 11th grade this can be a dream come true!

You will have some of the greatest experiences of your life by taking advantage of all this program has to offer.

From there you’ll head out to Las Vegas, Nevada, followed by St. George, Utah, and finally Flagstaff, Sedona, and Tempe, Arizona.
