TEEN LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

LEARN, LEAD, and SERVE

Teens at camp get the awesome opportunity to learn and practice their leadership skills. This is done through two unique programs. The LITs (leaders-in-training) spend time learning what leaders do and say, and the CITs (counselors-in-training) put these lessons into practice. Teens lead skits, games or activities, serve the camp community by helping in the garden or kitchen, and participate in various camp programs.

 

We believe that being a leader means practicing the core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility. Sometimes this looks like:

     

     Caring: Greeting someone or asking how they are, lending a hand, doing something for someone else

     Honesty: Speaking up, asking questions, admitting what you are feeling, 

     Respect: Saying please and thank you, holding the door for someone, including others

     Responsibility: Taking initiative, picking up after yourself or others, looking out for each other

LITs and CITs will have the chance to set goals, meet new friends, and build a meaningful camp experience for themselves and others!

LIT Program Outcomes

1. Learn to identify their strengths and communicate those to others

2. Set goals and challenge themselves in a safe, supportive environment

 

3. Experience an increase in self-confidence as a result of the achievements and connections made during the week at camp

 

4. Learn to be more self-reliant 

CIT Program Outcomes

2. Understand their role in the group's success

 

3. Practice being a positive role model

 

4. Take ownership of their own camp experience
