Ages: 14–17 (at time of camp)

The Shaver’s Creek Summer Camp Leaders-In-Training (LIT) program provides high school students with an opportunity to develop and exercise their leadership skills while providing young campers with positive outdoor experiences. LITs spend their time at camp in a group of about 10 children ages 4–5 (Wee Wonderers), 6–11 (Discovery/Explorer), or 12–14 (Investigators) that is led by an adult Naturalist. The role of a LIT is to support their Naturalist by helping to manage the group and lead activities while developing leadership skills and serving as a positive role model for campers.

We are seeking responsible, enthusiastic, and energetic volunteers who value the impact and importance of connecting with the natural world. If you enjoy being outdoors and working with kids, are interested in challenging yourself and working toward personal goals, and want to support healthy relationships between people and the environment, the LIT program might be a great fit for you!
