Resources for Accepted LITs

The Shaver’s Creek Summer Camps 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), 6–8 (Discovery), 9–11 (Explorer), or 12–14 (Investigators) that is led by an adult naturalist. The role of an LIT is to provide support to the naturalist through assisting campers, serving as a positive role model, and leading games/songs/activities. 

If you are responsible, enjoy being outdoors and working with kids, are interested in challenging yourself and working toward personal goals, are growth-oriented, and want to support healthy relationships between people and the environment, the LIT program might be a great fit for you!
