LIT Program

The Leader-In-Training (LIT) program successfully develops young leaders. Participants gain skills that benefit them in all areas of life. (Age 16)


Life-Changing Experience

The LIT program is an essential part of our community. With our LIT directors as mentors, the participants have excellent role models. LITs work with our staff team to develop and strengthen new skills and abilities. Leadership development and responsibility are at the core of this transformative program.

Candidates must be 16 years of age on or before June 25, 2022 to apply and are selected through an interview process. Once officially accepted into the program, participants will be instructed to formally register online and pay camp fees.

High School Work Experience credits can be earned through this program for all school districts that can be counted towards the Rutherford Scholarship.

LITs get in-depth training in the skills below, in addition to our Traditional Camp activities.

  • Self-Discipline

LITs are still campers, not staff members of Camp Cadicasu.
