Leader in Training Program (5 weeks) July 11- August 14th – $6,395
Leaders in Training” (LIT) Program at Forest Lake Camp is a leadership program specifically designed to not only prepare a camper for being a summer camp counselor, but also a leader in society. 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. This is an opportunity for our 16-year-old campers.
An LIT is first and foremost a great role model. They are someone who embodies the best characteristics of FLC: confident, responsible, respectful, fun, and has grown into a leadership role which shows they can be flexible, make positive improvements with little direction, and are willing to take on challenges.
The $6,636 reflects the 20% LIT discount
