Leaders in Training (LIT)

Leaders in Training (LIT) is not running in summer 2021, please check back for future offerings.

Take on a leadership role

Come and participate in the Leaders in Training (LIT) program where you will have the opportunity to work with children and gain valuable leadership skills in a recreation setting. Our LIT program gives youth ages 13-17 a chance to discover the benefits of taking on a leadership role while meeting new friends and having fun in some summer camps. This experience will be an awesome addition to your resume as you start thinking about your future endeavors. Youth must have completed grade 7 to register for the Leaders in Training program.

How the program works

Step #1

Register your youth online in one of the LIT training sessions. There are two levels: Level one is for youth new to the program or those who have been away for a while and Level 2 is for returning youth to build on their skills.

Step #2

Each applicant will be contacted in early June by a summer coordinator to set up a placement interview. Each LIT will bring their resume (if they have one) and availability to a placement interview where they will get a chance to meet the summer coordinator mentor. Here they will get a better understanding of what will be expected of them and which camps would be the best fit. Those who complete the placement interview and can commit to a minimum of 35 consecutive hours of program (one full week of camp) will be placed with our fantastic summer staff in some of the coolest and most fun summer programs around.

Step #3

Leaders in Training will go through one full day or two evenings of training with our summer coordinator prior to their program placement. Trainings are divided into two different levels. In level 1 (new LIT’s) participants will learn new games, crafts, activities, and leadership skills that they can practice in camp, as well as a basic understanding of what they can expect during the summer. In level 2 (returning LIT’s), participants will expand on that knowledge and learn practical tools to expand on the leadership skills they have gained from previous summers. For both trainings make sure the participants dress to be active both indoors and outdoors.

Step #4

Leaders in Training will complete a minimum of 35 hours/one week of camp, and upon completing the time requirement will receive a letter of completion as well as a certificate. All LITs will be given mid- and end-week feedback to help promote their leadership growth.

If you do not hear from the summer coordinator to set up an interview at least one week prior to training or have any questions about which training to register in, please call a member of our staff at 780-418-6088.

Come one, come all and join us in the Leaders in Training program for a fun and exciting adventure this summer.
