Leaders in Training (L.I.T.) - Entering 9th Grade

Making the transition from camper to leader!

Leaders in Training (L.I.T.) is a hybrid program that provides both a great travel camp experience and valuable hands-on leadership instruction needed to be a successful summer camp counselor.

H e r e ’ s  t h e  L E A D  o n  t h e  p r o g r a m . . .

  • L.I.T.s will alternate their weeks in summer camp between being a counselor intern (specific group and specialty) and as a travel camper which includes one extended (4 nights/5 days) overnight trip per 4 week session.

  • In summer 2015, L.I.T. campers will look forward to:
    Week 3 ( July 13 – July 17 ) New England - kayaking, fishing, candlepin bowling, Fenway Park
    Week 6 (August 3 – August 7) North Carolina - Bryce Mountain Resort, Natural Bridge, Smoky Mountains National Park

  • In counselor internships, L.I.T.s work independently and as part of a leadership group honing communication skills, developing trust and engaging in creative thinking with professional speakers and facilitators.

  • L.I.T.s successfully completing at least one 4-week session of the program have first priority to work at Camp Yachad the following summer as a Counselor in Training (C.I.T.).

  • L.I.T.s will learn about games and activities that engage young campers; they will learn how to work with peers and supervisors, and they will learn leadership styles and approaches, time management, communication and organization skills.

  • Get this...lunch (when at the JCC), snacks and door-to-door transportation are all included.

Staff Detail

An adult Staff Unit Director and an Assistant Unit Director oversee L.I.T.s at the JCC. An additional staff member joins them for the extended overnights.
