Leader In Training (LIT) Program

With 20 years of leadership development under our belt, Elite Camps believes in growing our own leaders. Athletes that have enjoyed our programming, buy into our culture are the prime candidates we are looking for to develop into our future staff.

The program is based on a two-week session designed for candidates aged 14/15 who have just completed grade 9.

The Ideal Camper for this Program

The Leader in Training (LIT) program is ideal for any male or female who has just completed grade 9 and is looking for a two-week program that can help them start the process of transitioning from activity participation to activity leadership

The  LIT  program  is  for  athletes  who  show  strong  initiative,  character  and  work  ethic  on  the  basketball  court  and are  eager  to  transfer  those  skills  to  build  their  leadership  skills  for  success  off  court.

The ideal camper for this program is interested in enjoying the fun and excitement of our teen summer camp but also ready to develop and work on their leadership skills through in-class sessions one-two hours a day .

Candidates then get to experience (through observation) how these leadership skills work within the structure of our own Elite Camps summer camp community and the various job responsibilities and expectations.
