Take your skills up a notch, get valuable training, and spend an unforgettable summer forging friendships as part of a team! LIT's live in cabins the first week and can choose to stay in backcountry shelters they personally build the second week. LIT's must attend camp for a minimum of four consecutive weeks. The first week is spent facilitating and shadowing staff and peers while the second week is spent in the backcountry with the Forest Overnight Camp. LIT's participate in the pre-day game plan with staff which allows teens to begin developing an awareness for both curriculum design as well as the need for improvisation, making last minute changes due to things like weather or new opportunities. LIT's participate in all aspects of camp life with their cabins (activities, meals, overnight). With the support of Instructors, LIT's will play dual roles; both as participants, practicing skills with the group, and as assistants, being called upon to lead activities. This position is highly recommended for anyone interested in becoming an Instructor in the future. LIT spots are open to anyone, although preference is given to former campers in filled weeks. The week for LIT's begins with drop-off on Sunday, and lasts through pick-up on the appropriate Saturday.
