Leadership Programs

Leadership Programs: Ages 15-16

Our Leadership Programs is a 2-year Teen Leadership Program for youth ages 15 & 16 who wish to increase their confidence and responsibility, and have a ton of fun with other people their own age. Leaders in Training (LIT’s) are for 15 year-olds, while Counselors in Training (CIT’s) is for 16 year-olds. There are coordinators supervise and mentor LIT’s and CIT’s throughout the programs, as well as facilitate activities and evaluate the participants.

Leaders in Training (LIT’s)

During this first year of our Leadership Programs, LIT’s spend most of their time developing teamwork and leadership skills, while also learning how to interact with people of different backgrounds. Each day includes camp and LIT development activities. The LIT program is held over two weeks where they spend Sunday, through the weekend, until the following Saturday at Camp. The LIT Program is for 15 year-olds and is a 2-week program.

Counselors in Training (CIT’s)

The CIT program is the 2nd year of our Leadership Programs and is for 16 year-olds. This is a 3-week program that will focus on how to interact with kids who have disabilities, learn behavior management skills, and how to give a positive camp experience to children. CITs will spend their time doing leadership activities and being in a cabin with campers and a veteran counselor mentor to provide guidance while they put all the skills they have learned to work.
