Hill House is proud to offer a LIT program! This program is designed for 13-15 year olds who wish to begin the gradual transition from camper to counselor. Each participant will take part in planning, assisting with and evaluating activities at camp. LITs will have their own designated mentor/counselor, assist other counselors, and participate in camp activities each session. LITs will develop and define their own leadership style, build confidence, and strengthen interpersonal skills that can be used at home, school and in the community – all under the supervision of the LIT counselor and our other staff. It’s all not work, however, as summer is supposed to be fun too! Our LIT's will benefit from some recreational time by participating in some traditional camp activities including weekly games, sports, art, and field trips.
Skill Building and Experiential Learning:
Under supervision and instruction of our Leadership staff, LITs will learn/participate in:
• Program Lesson Planning
• Age-Appropriate Curriculum Development for Campers
