The JCamps Leaders In Training (LIT) Program allows teens to gain leadership and counselor skills. Each session will provide teens with the opportunity to experience what it is like working at a summer camp. LITs will spend each day together learning and discussing what it means to be a leader. And most afternoons LITs will be with a camp room gaining hands-on counselor skills. Upon completion of the LIT Program, participants will receive community service hours.

If you attend our LIT program and become a Junior Counselor next year, you are eligible for a higher pay rate!
