Ages 15 - 16 (entering grade 10)
Over the years Capital Camps has had thousands of campers take part in its programs and unfortunately many campers were not able to return because they had become too old. Fortunately Capital Camps has introduced a Leader In Training (LIT) program where 15 or 16 year olds can come back to camp and assist the instructors with the day to day operations. Many members of the LIT program use this as their community service for high school, or use it as a way to develop a good reference for that elusive first job.
The LIT program will run every week of the summer. To be eligible, participants must have completed grade 9 and it helps if they attended Capital Camps for a minimum of two weeks in the past.
After 2 years as a camper, this year I decided to enroll into Capital Camps’ Leader In Training program. I already knew how the camp worked and I didn’t think that being in LIT would be that different. By the end of 2 weeks, I learned so much about what it means to be a leader. I developed skills and made bonds with people in such a great and positive environment. I can honestly say that the LIT program made me a better person, and a better leader. The counselors are great and they make the time we spend at camp unforgettable.

My son loved his time as a LIT at Capital Camps. He started out going for 1 week but enjoyed it so much and did so well he went for 5 weeks last summer! He learned a lot from Aaron and his team and actually wanted to wake up early on camp days!
