SUMMER 2020 is currently closed- you may email to get on wait list.
This year’s Leaders in Training (LIT) program is designed to add more flexibility to your summer! LIT’s must attend for a minimum of 4 weeks, and you may choose the weeks that work for your family’s summer plans. The LIT experience is designed for incoming 7th - 10th graders that want to have a summer of FUN, while learning leadership skills and participating in projects throughout the community. Leader In Training program will help the teens gain skills, challenge themselves, and learn about ways they can contribute to their community.
The weeks will be filled with general camp F-U-N with a leadership twist. We will be working on large scale and small scale community projects this summer:
- Bake Sale: We are going to learn to scale recipes, kitchen operations and sanitation, budgeting, goal setting, marketing and then get baking! The LITs will then operate bake sale days in our community.
- Track Meet: We are going to put together the MRPA track meet at the GNG HS. We will recruit and assign volunteers, accept registrations, time the meet, record results, pass out awards, etc.
- Host Blood Drive: We are going to work with the American Red Cross to host a Blood Drive event at Town Hall. We will learn about the blood donation needs in our community and how blood donation saves lives. We will work to set up the stations, take registrations, provide refreshments and recruit donors.
- LITs will build upon the Cornhole Tournament we hosted last summer. We will construct and decorate the boards, organize brackets, register teams, and operate the tournament on the last day of camp.
- LITs have 7 great trips planned this summer: Range Pond, Funtown, Monkey C, Monkey Do, Aquaboggan, Sea Dogs, and Rafting with Adventure Bound.
- This group works closely with the Summer Day Camp (Grade School level) and has the opportunity to volunteer in assisting with this camp when scheduled throughout the summer.
