Week 1: Training: Leaders in training (LITs) will be in a small group together from July 5-9th in King’s Mill Park with an experienced mentor. During this week, you’ll learn about different leadership styles and facilitation techniques, practice games and activities that lead campers to fun and connection, and receive the feedback and attention that so many young leaders can benefit from.
Weeks 2 & 3: Placements: During these weeks, the LITs will be placed with camp groups, gaining direct experience working with younger campers! Each week, you will be placed with a different mentor and camp group at one of our two program locations (King’s Mill Park and ET Seton Park). LITs will assist in planning and delivering summer camp programming, whether it’s mammal tracking, a scavenger hunt or making crafts from natural materials. Building on the foundation of the first week, you will work closely with staff teams to deliver a fun, outdoor learning experience! Throughout the placement weeks, LITs will receive feedback from a multitude of experienced staff members, allowing you to integrate your learnings and step out of your comfort zone.
Dates & Location:
Payment will be required in full when your application is accepted and you’re invited to register. If payment in full creates financial hardship for your family, please let us know and we can discuss a custom payment plan.
We recognize that navigating this year’s many unknowns is difficult for families. Our cancellation policy is designed to provide flexibility in the coming months – families will receive a full refund, minus a $50 administration fee, for any cancellation made 28 days or more before the start of camp. Guardians should review our full cancellation policy carefully before registering. Please note, LITs are considered to be “campers” within the context of Pine’s policies and procedures.
How to apply:
In order to be considered as an LIT:
- Complete the APPLICATION FORM – this must be completed by YOU, the teen applying!
- Ask one adult to fill out a character REFERENCE FORM for you. A character reference is an adult who can speak about you (it could be a teacher, coach, extra-curricular leader or neighbour).
Once you have submitted your application and we have received one character reference, you will be invited to have a short conversation so that we can get to know you a little better! Following the conversation, if you’re invited to join the LIT program, you’ll be sent instructions on how to register.
Please note that we have a limited amount of spots in our LIT program. Teens should complete their application before June 7, 2021 to be considered in the first round of applications.
