Leader in Training (LIT)

A teen leadership program for youth age 16 – 17 and this program emphasizes the development of confidence, responsibility, leadership, taking the next step in their camping experience and learning what it takes to one day be a day camp counselor. Each week L.I.Ts will be paired with counselors and group to shadow. They will also get to do activities with their groups, have sessions to learn leadership skills and help set up and facilitate activities.  This program emphasizes development of confidence, responsibility, and of course, leadership. This is done by teaching the core values of the YMCA and camp, and then slowly allowing the LIT’s to assist Day Camp counselors in running activities, and working with children. Although LIT’s follow the same schedule of a general Day Camp day, they act independently from the rest of Day Camp, there is a specialist LIT coordinator who will take them to activities, and mentor them throughout the week.
