This camp is designed to build the following character traits:

  • Independence: Leaders in Training are encouraged to show self-initiative and make decisions based on their own intuition. Through the guidance of our counselors, LIT's learn how to be independent and resourceful leaders.
  • Interpersonal skills: Throughout the program, Leaders in Training develop strong relationships with the campers in their group. LIT's learn how to successfully resolve conflict, and communicate effectively to lead their campers.

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority's (TRCA) Leaders in Training Program at Tommy Thompson Park provides youth ages 14-17 with an opportunity to develop leadership skills in a beautiful wilderness day camp setting. In this two-week program (weekends excluded), LIT campers will participate in leadership training sessions while also helping with Nature Camp on The Spit activities for younger campers.

The progression through the two weeks will shift from active observation to direct experience leading camp activities. Spaces are limited, ensuring that participants will have meaningful growth experiences through the program. 

Session 1: ART ON THE SPIT (July 18-22 and July 25-29)

Let’s get creative! During our Art on The Spit camps, campers will draw inspiration from nature found within Tommy Thompson Park to draw and sketch, create their own ephemeral art, practice photography skills, and more! We’ll hone our artistic skills and learn how to view the natural world from new perspectives.

Session 2: BECOME A NATURE EXPERT (August 8-12 and August 15-19)

There’s always more to discover about the natural world. During our Become a Nature Expert camps, we will focus on learning about Tommy Thompson Park’s flora and fauna (plants and animals). Campers will refine their identification skills and explore the relationships between organisms in their natural communities. We will also give back to nature by performing acts of stewardship, helping the local wildlife thrive! To attend, all you need is a love of nature.

Session 3: BIRDS IN THE CITY (August 22-26 and August 29- September 2)

Tommy Thompson Park is a birding hotspot! During our Birds in the City camps, campers will discover the bird species that call The Spit home. We’ll explore for birds, learn about bird calls, and visit the Bird Research Station to see birds up close before they’re released. Campers will be provided with binoculars and field guides to use during the camp week.
