Leader in Training (LIT)

A teen leadership program for Day Campers! Open to youth aged 13 – 15, 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.

LIT weekly themes are designed to encourage campers to come enjoy the outdoors, while making new friends, gaining self confidence, challenging themselves to new activities and to thrive in a natural environment.  All L.I.T’s must be 13 – 15 and this program emphasizes development of confidence, responsibility, leadership and taking the next step in their camping experience

$200 for member campers / $225 for non members. Space is limited and often fills up.
