Interested in the Leader In Training (LIT) program this summer?
Dates for the 2011 LIT program are set for this upcoming summer. Our July program runs from July 3 -30 and our August program runs from July 31 - Aug 27. During their time with us, our LIT's receive extensive leadership training, and "on the job" training in all of our activity areas and camper cabins. Participating in team-building activities, such as a visit to a ropes course, and a canoe trip or hike in Algonquin Park, they spend 4 consecutive weeks learning what it means to be a leader at camp and in their community.
How does your child apply to be an LIT?
We will accept a maximum of 10 males and 10 females for each program (July & August), and we will notify all applicants upon acceptance. LIT's need to be 16 by December 31 2011.
The criteria for acceptance into the program depend on the completion of the 2011 Camper Application Form along with a deposit of $900. In addition to the application form, candidates are required to submit their resume and a letter of application to express why they want to be an LIT. Consideration is given to camp levels that the candidates have achieved, outside qualifications, (eg. first aid, coaching, etc), personality, and leadership potential. Campers who have not been with us for a long time should not assume they won't be accepted - please apply!
The cost of the LIT program in 2011 is $2412.55 (HST included). You may be interested to know that this past summer a number of our LIT's used this program to fulfill their community service requirements at school.
Please give careful consideration to this possibility. Our LIT's have told us every year that it was "the summer of their lives!"
