Rainbow Camp's® Leaders-in-Training (LIT) Program (ages 17-18)

The LIT Program is a two-week program focussed on leadership, teambuilding and personal growth. During the first week, LITs will have the opportunity to engage in teambuilding activities, participate in camp activities and learn how to be leaders at Rainbow Camp. During the second week, LITs will be paired with an experienced counsellor in a cabin to support our younger campers. Participants in this program will also participate in an overnight canoe camping trip.

Participants in the LIT program must commit to the entire two-week session in July 2020.  Space is limited so please apply early. For more information about our LIT Program click here

"Camp equips these kids to return to their home communities and

activities feeling confident, energized and better able to live authentically."
