Leader in Training: June 3rd-30th, 2018   

Overview: As a Leader-in-Training, you will be given opportunities to lead on your own and to develop a Growth Mindset. Structured challenges provide LIT’s with a chance to succeed (and fail) in a safe and supportive environment. LIT applicants should have these five essential commitments:

  1. A passion for working with youth.
  2. Desire to better understand your strengths, passions, and voice as a leader.
  3. Willingness to “practice failing” with a mindset towards learning.
  4. Enthusiasm for team and community building.
  5. Strong interest in developing skills, work habits, and character traits that are important tools for future success. 

Camp Fire expects LITs to be eager learners who are willing to participate in a focused, caring, and intentional way. You should expect to be challenged, stretch comfort zones, and to act as positive role models for campers, exemplifying the Camp Fire Mission and Promise.

Eligibility:  LIT candidates must be 16 or 17 years old by June 3rd, and must complete a health history form.

Additional Details:

  • Camp leadership oversees the LIT program, coordinates LIT assignments, and acts as their liaison with counselors.
  • During Camp, LITs will be transported in Camp Fire approved vehicles. LITs will have weekends off and may be transported back to Anchorage in Camp Fire vehicles.
