The Leader in Training (LIT) program is open to campers who are 14 OR 15 years old. Please note that 14 year old participants in the LIT program will graduate one year too early for them to be counselors at the end of our leadership program. They will inevitably need to do one of our programs twice, two years in a row. Please consider that when deciding on when to begin our Leadership track. We trust you as parents and participants to make the best decision for your camper.
The LIT program takes a deeper look into leadership, challenging teens to practice creativity, manage a project as a team and begin to identify which leadership skills they are already great at or need to continue to develop. LIT’s observe counselors in action, work through team building and challenge course activities. The Leader in Training camp is an incredible opportunity for teens to build self-confidence and recognize their leadership potential.
Teens in this program have the chance to try the traditional camp activities from archery to paddle boarding during free time every day and will enjoy a group “escape” across the lake in canoes or via mountain bikes on the trails around camp.
LIT’s share a yurt or a platform tent with the campers of the same gender identity. After completion of the program, LIT’s are invited to apply for a space in the Counselor in Training program for the next summer. Y Camp’s counselor in training program works to find the next leaders of Y Camp.
