Leaders in Training

We are sorry to announce that we will not be running an LIT week in 2023.  A new LIT leadership team is coming together and starting to plan for 2024 and beyond, and we are so excited to reimagine and rebuild this important program.  Stay tuned for more information coming in the future.

Choosing to be an LIT

The Leaders in Training program is held on the grounds of Stayner Camp, during one of our Trail of the Pines Day Camp weeks in July.  The LIT program is designed for teens age 13-15, to help you as you transition from being a camper to becoming a junior staff member.  The LIT program emphasizes the development of your leadership abilities, Christian faith, and the skills you need to effectively teach, support and lead the activities at camp or in the Church.  There will be some classroom style learning, lots of observing to do, and opportunities to practice your skills hands-on.

The skills you are beginning to acquire will take you someday into further education and the workplace.  Camp plays a unique role in character development and building a strong work ethic.  At the end of the week successful participants will receive a certificate of completion which could be a valuable addition to a resume.  When we hire staff for Mishewah or Stayner, preference is given to successful graduates of our LIT program.

We hope you will consider participating in the LIT program, but we also hope that your desire is to still be a camper at a week of camp and our sister camp, Mishewah, runs excellent weeks for teens!
