Camp at a Glance
Big Blue Summer Leaders in Training Day Camp
Our Leaders-In-Training program is tailored to allow middle-schoolers to become more familiar with leadership roles at camp and to develop the skills necessary to become our future CITs and Counselors, all while having tons of summer fun!
LITs are supervised by counselors at all times, with all LIT programming being led by a specialist or a member of the camp leadership team. In comparison to younger campers’ programs, LITs have fewer activity rotations on their schedule. This allows enough time in each activity for increasingly independent LITs to chart their own course and take ownership of their exploration. Projects are presented as open-ended assignments that encourage LITs to practice problem-solving and collaboration skills everywhere from the STEAM Art Studio to the swimming pool.
While we may task LITs with creating fun for other campers, they are never responsible for those campers’ safety and well-being as a staff member would be. LIT projects this summer will include collaboration on the week-in-review video, reading to Kinders, and a weekly “LIT Picnic” with the Minis to help them acclimate to the Outdoor Adventures area. Each summer, we are inspired by the LIT group’s own project suggestions based on their interests, prior experiences, and our camp culture. Leadership training may also include team-building activities, communication skills, first aid and safety training, game theory, and mentorship opportunities.
Campers can register for single weeks, or all 7 weeks.
