Be a Leader at Rainbow Camp®. Register for our Leaders In Training Program!
This two-week program is designed for 2SLGBTQ+ youth who are age 17-18 who want to experience the fun and excitement of summer camp… while taking on added responsibility.
The Rainbow Camp LIT program aims to foster skills in collaboration, accountability and leadership through the lens of camp counsellors and leaders in the LGBTQ2+ community. This program also serves as a great bridge for former Rainbow Camp campers who want to become counsellors.
The Rainbow Camp LIT program is two weeks long: LIT 1 – July 4 – 16 and LIT 2 – July 18 – 30 2021, and the registration fee is $625. This fee covers only the basics: food and lodging. The rest of the costs such as activities, materials and staffing are covered by our fundraising efforts. If you need assistance in paying the registration fee you can request a subsidy for part or all of the $625.
Week one will focus on leadership, team-based activities, and social change. In addition to the leadership programming, LITs will have opportunities to participate in traditional camp activities such as swimming, canoeing, campfires and crafts.
In the second week, LITs will be paired with a cabin group of younger campers and can employ their leadership skills with the support of Rainbow Camp counsellors as mentors. LITs will have opportunities to lead programming such as crafts, discussions, reflection circles, campfires, games, and group activities.
Registration opens in January 2021
