Applewild Summer Leadership Program Enrolling NOW!

20 Apr

We are excited to offer NEW, updated leadership opportunities for attendees to Applewild Summer Programs this year! To reflect the enhanced vision and goals for these programs, they are now called Leaders in Training, replacing our CIT program.

Junior LIT : Leader-in-training; for grades 7-10 (must be 14 years old or by Director approval). This program gives the participants the ability to see what it’s like to be a counselor and leader in camp. Participants will learn how to effectively lead activities, gain supervisory skills, and develop the confidence to lead by example. Upon successful completion of this program, you will receive a certificate confirming your achievement.

Registration Options are either Full-day LIT OR half-day LIT, and optional additional programming for the remainder of the day.

Senior LIT : This selective program is by application only, ages 16 and up. Participants are given increased responsibility in the areas of camper supervision, program development and implementation, and advanced leadership training from program directors.

The application is available here SeniorLeaderinTrainingApplication or by emailing
