In making a decision about your candidacy, we will weigh the effort shown through your application as well as through our follow up interview with each candidate.
Be sure to include in your one-page essay why you feel you would make a strong and effective LIT. Please be specific, use examples, and explain your goals for the summer. We also require 1 letter of recommendation from a teacher, mentor or coach from your high school.
Completed LIT applications should be sent to [email protected] Upon receiving your LIT application and online enrollment, we will review your submission and make a decision in a timely manner.
FLC’s LIT program is a 7-week program. All 7-week LIT’s will receive a 20% discount to the total tuition with additional early enrollment discounts.
Due to COVID-19 and the cancellation of the 2020 summer season, all previously accepted LITs for 2020 are welcome to return to camp in 2021 to complete their LIT year without submitting another application. Please notify Caroline ([email protected]) if you intend on returning to camp and joining the LIT class of 2021 as well as enrolling online. Any 2020 LITs who decide to join the 2021 group will be counted as an additional LIT spot and will not take away from any new applicant’s place.

The small print:
We have reserved these slots for campers who truly show leadership potential and have a desire to excel in the camp setting. This is demonstrated through previous summer experience and performance (if applicable), the application, and a formal interview. All communications and forms should be the work of the applicant. Submission of an application does not indicate an acceptance into the LIT program. Acceptance into the LIT program does not guarantee employment for future summers.
