Leaders-in-Training (LIT) Program: 
 

Thank you for considering Tapawingo Trails Camp’s Leaders-in-Training (LIT) program.

Tailor-made activities will challenge young women to take an active leadership role during camp that prepares them for their future. The mentorship program, participation in cooperative activities, and involvement in spiritual and cultural formation classes allow LIT’s to deepen in self-knowledge, friendship, and faith.  Many LITs later apply for staff positions at Tapawingo Trails Camp after receiving this excellent training.

 

Leaders-in-Training participants (LITs) must complete a LIT Application Form in addition to registering as a camper.  The form contains the requirement to write a 250-word essay describing why the candidate would like to be a LIT.  The essay must accompany the application for it to be considered.  Please refer to the LIT Application Form for the essay parameters. The LIT Director will also be conducting a telephone or Zoom interview with each applicant the first and second week of June.
