Teen Programs: Leader-in-Training

Does your high school student want to spend the summer adventuring outdoors, teaching and playing with kids? Our Leader-in-Training program gives high school students training, mentorship, and real-life experiences to sharpen their organization, social, and responsibility skills. LITs earn volunteer hours along with first-hand professional experience. 

 
In order to be considered for this program, both new and returning LITs must send a letter of interest to the Camp Director between December 1 and April 30. LITs must commit to a minimum of two weeks. Slots are competitive and will be filled on a rolling basis.
