Leadership Training


L.I.T. is an exciting and challenging program geared toward building the participants’ leadership skills while still in a supervised and structured environment. During the program participants will develop the following leadership components: time management, leading organized activities, service learning, public speaking and listening. These valuable tools are beneficial in more than the camp community; they will be useful in life as well. Working in small groups, teens will participate in team initiatives, leadership workshops, service projects and all camp activities. As part of the course participants will create, plan and implement a 2-day back-packing trip for themselves at the end of the their course. This is a 2-week residential program, and unlike the younger campers, participants will not go home in between sessions. Parents may visit camp the Friday between sessions to switch out camper laundry, bring additional snacks, or just say Hello. Please make prior arrangements with the camp director.
