LEADER IN TRAINING (LIT) PROGRAM AT CAMP BIRKETT (ENTERING 7TH, 8TH OR 9TH grade)
The Leader-in-Training program allows older campers to build leadership skills and assume some counselor responsibilities while still participating in their favorite Camp Birkett activities. Through a combination of workshops, supervised opportunities with younger campers, program planning and general camp activities, participants will be exposed to the basic elements of youth development through the lens of a camp counselor. Leadership skills, teamwork, and the development of the YMCA character values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility are emphasized. See Camp Birkett section for more information on daily schedule and transportation.
