Leadership & Naturalist Training Program
The LIT program provides a unique opportunity for high school students entering grades 10-12 to enjoy their summer in a fun camp setting, while getting the opportunity to build on their leadership skills through hands on experiences.
have a question about the lit program?
>> Are you in high school and enjoy working with elementary-aged children or want a career with kids?
>> Do you enjoy being outdoors?
>> Do you enjoy canoeing or have a desire to learn?
>> Do you think you many want to be a Camp Counselor one day?
If so, the LIT program may be a good fit for you this summer!
LITs are in charge of manning two of our three ponds, where they will help campers learn how to canoe. LITs will also get the chance to engage in peer team building activities, leadership exercises and gain techniques on working with children. This program also gives them a chance to put these skills to use by helping our counselors with their groups of campers.
A $330 fee per session cover professional leadership and naturalist training, regular supervision, evaluations, and a Camp Kingfisher shirt. Interviews for the program are conducted as applications are received. Applications are accepted until the program is full.
