Leaders in Training Program

Entering Grades 9-10 (Fall 2021)

Making the transition from camper to leader, the LIT program is for campers entering 9th & 10th grade. Leaders in Training (LIT) provides both a camp experience and valuable hands-on leadership instruction.

  • LITs will alternate their weeks of camp between being a counselor intern (specific group and specialty) and helping on field trips with the campers
  • LITs will include one full-day trip per 4-week session.
  • During counselor internships, LITs work independently and as part of a leadership group developing communication skills, and engaging in creative thinking with professional speakers and facilitators.
  • LITs who successfully complete at least one 4-week session of the program have first priority to work at Camp J the following summer as a Counselor in Training
  • LITs 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.
