The LIT program is a ‘life’ program that helps prepare kids for adulthood, college, and additional responsibility. It is bigger than a traditional CIT program.
An LIT is first and foremost, a great role model. She is someone who embodies the best characteristics of Forest Lake Camp: confident in trying new things, responsible, respectful, fun, and has grown into a leadership role which shows they can be flexible, make positive improvements with little direction, and is willing to take on challenges.
Some of the things a LIT can expect of her summer are to:
- Assist counselors and learn from them in both the cabins and activities
- Experience the value of reflection through conversation in small groups with a focus on one’s personal journey and the tools needed to move forward in life
- Be involved in meetings (planning, informational and training)
- Practice stewardship, both in the FLC community as well as outside of FLC (all LIT’s have the opportunity to receive up to 50 hrs of community service hours toward high school requirements
- Become a more effective teacher and coach through working with campers and great staff
- Receive American Red Cross lifeguard/CPR certification
- Evaluations and feedback on their performance
