Session #3 LIT at Perth TableNew in 2014 – now offered at both camps! The Leaders in Training program helps young adults develop leadership and other practical skills, which can be used throughout their lives for their own personal growth.

Each session has 8 LIT participants, who live in a cabin with other LITs and are supervised by the LIT programmer. They gain valuable leadership skills through team building activities, discussions, journals, mentoring and evaluations.

The program is both challenging and fun. The LITs live together, hang out together and participate in a special ‘out of camp’ trip together as well as participate in regular camp programs, as LITs. There are also plenty of opportunities for everyone to practice their newly developed leadership skills within the camp community. This 10 day program costs $1,000.

Campers under the age of 19 years as of July 1 (of the camping year) and who are not a Crown Ward, are eligible to receive funding from Easter Seals Ontario. Families are asked to pay what they can, with a minimum payment of $150. The remainder will be funded by our generous donors. Campers who are 19+ are not eligible to receive funding and are required to pay full fees.

This program is open to teenagers between the ages of 17 – 22 years (as of July 1 of the camping year) who have a physical disability. Participants must be able to direct their own care, participate in team building activities and interested in developing leadership skills. Easter Seals Ontario counsellors will be able to provide campers with any care they may require, however, campers should feel comfortable directing their own care, as the counsellors will take their direction from them.
