Leader in Training Program

The Leader in Training (or LIT) Program is perfect for rising high school freshmen who are looking to have some fun, while they begin learning about the responsibilities of working with children. LITs spend about 75% of their day participating in the camp activities they love through our Elective Program. Each week, campers add to their schedules by choosing activities of interest. The majority of their schedule is elective based. They also attend a few trips throughout summer.

The remaining 25% of their day is spent with either a specific camp group or specialty area. The LITs are mentored by our counselors and specialists, while taking the first step towards becoming a staff member. LITs will have the opportunity to apply the skills learned when they return the following year for our Counselor in Training Program.

What sets our LITs apart, is that each summer they work alongside our CITs on a project designed to give back to our community. In the past, they have worked at local food pantries and senior centers. They also create a program to raise money for a charity of their choice. Over the years, they have raise thousands of dollars for organizations like the Ronald McDonald House, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and local families in need.
