Leadership at Evergreen

The Future of Camp!


The Jr. LIT (Junior Leader-In Training) program is for our oldest campers in the 7th and 8th Grade. The program is designed to build leaders both at camp and within their community. Jr. Leaders will participate in several activities throughout the summer that are aimed at building their own confidence and unique leadership skills: team building, character values, positive role-modeling, and problem-solving.  


The Jr. Leader experience will incorporate both the camper and counselor experience. Jr. Leaders are integrated into the camp program and receive hands-on experience working with specialists and counselors.  Jr. Leaders will have an augmented camp day that includes fun camp activities for themselves as well as learning portions of the day where they might be interacting directly with groups of children, such as leading camp games and free choice activities, or assisting with a group or specialist activity.
