Leaders in Training Program

Program Overview

This summer, our Leaders in Training program will be part of the new Aspenfire division for campers entering 6th-8th grades. This is geared toward campers who are ready to take the next steps in their camper experience, become leaders in our community, and begin the transition to eventually working at camp. This program focuses on participants learning the value of responsibility, growing into the type of person they want to be, and discovering how they want to help the world around them.

Throughout this three year program, Aspenfire LITs will participate in different tracks depending on their grade, including acting as buddies to our youngest campers, planning Maccabi (our multi-day camp-wide competition), creating sustainability and beautification projects throughout camp, and volunteering in the local Staten Island community.

Once a week, Aspenfire LIT’s will also take trips outside of camp. Last year, the group kayaked around Staten Island, visited an adventure course with ziplines and other ropes courses, and participated in multi-day trips to two sleepaway camps, among many other awesome adventures.
