LIT Program

Leader-In-Training ProgramĀ 

The Leader-In-Training (LIT) program provides participants the opportunity to develop strong leadership skills and self-confidence in the camp setting. These skills are not only applicable to camp but will also foster leadership in the communities to which the LIT will belong throughout life, including their school, college, neighborhood and workplace.

Within our supportive camp setting, participants attend workshops addressing a variety of leadership topics. At the same time, they live with a cabin of younger campers and are mentored by the cabin’s counselors. They participate in fun and challenging team building activities which facilitate the development of a strong, cohesive group of LITs each session, leading to what often become lifelong friendships. Teens who will complete their sophomore year in high school prior to the summer may apply.

Advanced Leadership Program

After successful completion of the Leader-In-Training program, participants have the opportunity to continue developing their leadership skills in the Advanced Leadership Program. Participants in this program will have daily responsibilities similar to those of our general counselors but with the added support from several members of our admin team. The Leadership-In-Training program director will work closely with participants to set goals, provide feedback, and further assist them in developing their leadership skills. Participants will also work with our summer camp program directors to gain experience in leading fun and effective programing. Participants in the Advanced Leadership Program are encouraged to attend our staff training week and to stay for at least one session but they are not required to commit to all 8 weeks of summer camp.
