During this two week session, Leaders in Training (LIT) will provide participants with training in how to use effective leadership skills throughout their lives and how to work effectively with children at camp and in many other settings.

  • During our LIT program, teens learn what great leaders do and say. Our LIT’s learn through leadership development workshops, service learning and hands-on activities.
  • Our LIT’s are assigned to assist with a trail group. This is the best way to practice new skills and learn.
  • The program makes time for camp fun like climbing the rock wall and swimming.
  • Every day our LIT’s come together to debrief and discuss what they have experienced and learned that day.
  • LIT participants graduate the program with lifelong skills and lifelong friends.
