Leader in Training Camp

Develop your leadership skills as one of our camp leaders! For teens entering 7th and 8th grade.

Summer Camp Leadership

Do you love camp and want to be a future camp leader? Spend the summer at Leader in Training Camp developing the leadership and teamwork skills necessary for becoming one of our camp staff. Leaders in Training (LITs) will participate in regular camp activities in addition to learning to plan and lead crafts, songs, and games for younger children. LITs will have the opportunity to volunteer at camp through the summer. Even though LITs work hard, we also have FUN! LITs will meet at a different camp every 2 weeks. Transportation will be available to and from camp locations each day.

NOTE: Summer camps have been canceled for 2020 due to COVID-19. Please check our Summer Recreation page for the latest programming updates.


Registration for 2020 is closed.

Dates and times

June 15 to August 13 (No camp July 1 through 7), Monday through Thursday, 8 to 11:30 a.m.



Full scholarships are available for LITs! Call Jen Gillard for information.
