Leaders in Training Program

Our Leader-In-Training program is designed for rising 10th, 11th and 12th graders. This program serves as an excellent transition from “Camper to Counselor” for Adventure Seekers Camp and is a very meaningful way to spend the summer. LITs assist the Counselors in leading groups of campers, and they have the opportunity to participate in many camp activities. LITs
must possess responsibility and leadership abilities. Prospective LITs must complete an application form which includes one letter of reference from someone who is not related to them (a teacher, mentor or group leader). A letter of reference should speak to why they would be a good fit for camp. LIT’s will be required to attend a 1 week training June 4-8. After that they will be required to volunteer for at least 2 weeks of camp but are welcome to volunteer for as many as they want. If you are interested and would like the application packet please contact [email protected]. Applications are due by May 15.
