Country Day Camp Leaders-in-Training  Program (LIT)       Registration Form

(14*-15 Years) *must be 14 by July 1, 2015

The LIT program will include heaps of summer fun and all the things you loved best about being a camper while building a foundation for the future.  This is a unique opportunity to develop, practice, and hone your leadership skills through hands on activities and discussions about types of leadership, communication, and team-building. You’ll participate in recreational intramural games, get certified in American Red Cross First Aid and CPR, and be involved in social action projects. At the end of the summer you will leave with 2 Red Cross certifications, a recommendation for your next job (whether it is with us, another camp, or an entirely different kind of work), a certificate of completion (looks great on your college application), and the possibility of earning a stipend and tips (that’s right, money!).

This experience isn’t for everyone and your application does not guarantee that you will be accepted to the program.   Here’s what you need to know: 

Attendance is required for all orientation and camp days.  If you are planning a family vacation or a week at a specialty camp, this program isn’t for you.

  • You must be 14 years old by June 30, 2015.
  • There is a fee of $995 for first time LITs, $895 for those who were CITs last summer.
  • You will need to submit the enclosed application and be prepared to come in for an interview.

 We are reserving our limited spaces for applicants whom we believe will be enthusiastic, responsible, and reliable. We hope you will be one of them!
