Leader In Training (L.I.T.)

The Leader in Training (L.I.T.) program is designed for our older campers who are ready for something more and  runs alongside regular day camp days and times. The L.I.T. program is for campers who are interested in gaining more responsibility, independence, and exploring their sparks. In this program, L.I.T.s work with our Lead Counselor to learn how to manage camper behavior in age-appropriate ways, understand best practices to encourage campers, how to lead games and activities, self and group reflection techniques and goal-setting. L.I.T.s will help direct what activities and challenges their group will take on each week. The skills learned in the L.I.T. program are skills that participants can use outside of camp in school, sports, extracurricular activities, and religious groups. Our staff is trained to create opportunities that will allow the L.I.T.s to practice their skills working with younger campers while still allowing times for them to have fun and participate in activities separate from younger campers. Flexible scheduling allows L.I.T.s to attend full weeks or individual days. Membership discounts and scholarships are available for this program.
