Leaders in Training

LIT (Leaders in Training): Entering Grades 9th-10th

 

The Program:
As in all program areas at camp, there is a Unit Leader who oversees the Leaders in Training program this person has a background of working with this age group and is there for guidance and support throughout the summer.

Community Building:
As in all programs at Camp Deeny Riback, we place a strong emphasis on community building with peers. Leaders in Training are still campers and will have the opportunity to participate in uniquely designed programs, trips, activities, socializing and more. LITs participate as a group in some Main Camp activities as interest, time and resources allow.

Leadership Seminars:
The exact list of seminars is always evolving based on the interests and specialties of both staff and campers at CDR in a given summer. Topics we are exploring included exploring personal leadership styles, servant leadership, public speaking, gender and leadership, outdoor adventure and leadership, event planning, child development, conflict mediation, Jewish values.

First Aid & CPR Certification:
Leaders in Training participate in a full day of training and receive certification in basic First Aid & CPR through the Red Cross. This certification is valid for 2 years.

Apprenticing with Main Camp Program Leaders:
LITs have the opportunity to participate in Main Camp activities as an apprentice by assisting with instruction. LITs are assigned to areas based on their interests and skills as well as the needs of the camp.  LITs entering 9th grade are given a taste of the different areas of camp so they can get the full picture of how camp works.  LITs entering 10th grade are assigned to a group or area of camp at the beginning of the summer and spend their summer in that placement.

Community Service and Chores:
LITs help the CDR community by assisting in lunch set up before each meal and helping out with big camp events such as Special Events.  LITs also engage in a few community service trips off camp as well as running the Annual Big Give Social Action Project at camp.
