We at Camp ANV believe every child is capable of leadership, because being a leader means you must first lead yourself and learn to successfully take on opportunities and challenges in life. The emerging generations simply need to be shown how.
Camp ANV’s Leaders in Training (LIT) Program provides youth ages 12-14 a leadership experience that focuses on cooperative learning and advanced development of camp activities including but not limited to cooking, farming, dance and wellness, outdoor activities, and overnight camping trips. Although the LIT program is a leadership training opportunity designed to assist the summer camp programs, the LITs will have their own unique program experiences aside from the younger campers.
Camp ANV’s LIT program is an educational program, with a curricula designed to develop the people and technical skills necessary to be an effective camp leader. Since this is a training program, Camp ANV’s LITs are not paid a salary, nor is a job for the next summer at the completion of the program assured. However, after participating in a full 4-week camp session, LITs will be eligible to apply for a Junior Counselor position (paid) for the following camp sessions.
