Develop Leadership Skills at Overnight Teen Camps

We don’t just provide an incredibly fun experience for our campers – three of our overnight teen camps specifically work on developing the leadership skills that our campers will utilize throughout their life.

LIT’s – Leaders in Training

  • Ages: 16 to 17 Grades: 10 to 11
  • During our LIT camp program, teenagers learn what great leaders do and say through study and example.
  • Our Leadership Counselors acts as the mentors and role models for all our LIT participants throughout the program.
  • Our LIT’s are housed together as their own community, separate from the rest of the overnight youth campers.
  • Campers are trained through leadership development workshops, practice exercises, and hands-on activities.
  • Campers are trained through leadership development workshops, practice exercises, and hands-on activities.
  • But it wouldn’t be camp if we didn’t make time for fun activities like swimming and racing up the climbing tower!
  • Every evening our LIT’s come together to debrief and discuss what they have experienced and learned that day.
  • Once they graduate from the Leaders in Training program, our participants depart with new skills and friends that last a lifetime! We also encourage successful graduates to apply for the next year’s Camp Assistant program if they’re interested.
