Working at a summer camp is a demanding job and it requires one to know their physical, mental and emotional needs. LITs will be subjected to a challenging environment that will accelerate these important personal learnings. They will become better leaders, work better with their peers and demonstrate positive role modelling to our younger campers. They will learn how to set and achieve personal and group goals. Within this four-week leadership program, participants enhance their knowledge of group dynamics, safety management, communication, decision-making, camper and self-evaluation, counseling and instructing. Led by the LIT Director, candidates are supported, nurtured and motivated by experienced staff through workshops, programming and regular feedback culminating in a formal evaluation at the end of the session. This is the final stage of development for future leaders and staff members and the pinnacle of a camper experience.
Campers must apply for acceptance into this program by completing a leadership application.
