The LIT and CIT programs provide teens with a strong set of skills they can use as future camp counselors and leaders in their communities. Our teen leadership development programs are some of the most comprehensive of their kind. Fifteen year olds begin with a week-long LIT program, which focuses on skill acquisition, team-building, personal development, goal setting, and community service. The CIT program is geared toward 16 year olds who aspire to work in childcare and continue as a leader at camp. During this two week program, participants learn the skills needed to care for children in a camp setting, develop interpersonal relationships, and work alongside members of the camp staff.
Many LIT and CIT participants were former campers who return to become volunteers and staff members, thus providing the legacy of energy and talent that has preserved more than 116 years of Bangor YMCA Wilderness Center at Camp Jordan tradition.
