Teen Leadership Summer Camps

L.I.T Program (Leader in Training) – NEW!

Grades 8th-12th
The Leader in Training program will invest towards developing teens to be true leaders, build self-confidence, and empower them to inspire the same in others. During this unique camp we will engage in activities and discussions about types of leadership, communication styles and methods, service work, team-building and other leadership skills while still participating in camp activities. Teens will also learn important skills like filling out job applications, creating a resume and participating in mock interviews. Participants are asked to dress in appropriate clothing for working outdoors and to bring a sack lunch. Community service opportunities are provided during this program. Additional paper work is required to participate in the L.I.T Program.

T.L.C – Teen Leadership Camp

Grades 8th-12th
The TLC program offered through the Channahon Park District is now the second step of our leadership development program. Participants can join us to study teaching styles and methods in activities as well as taking a CPR and First Aide training course. The TLC program is a 4 week session, with the T.L.C assisting with our Kinder Kamp and Camp Heritage programs. The program will run 3 days per week and will include an interview and pre-camp training. A T.L.C camper will participate in assisting with weekly lesson and activity planning, will participate and run group activities and will swim at the pool with the campers on pool days. This is a great opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience working with youth, leading programs and activities, and working with fellow staff in program conception, creation, and execution!

We are looking for T.L.C participants who will be a good role model for our young campers and willing to have fun this summer! T.L.C participants must be independent, responsible, and focused. Applications for the T.L.C Program must be fill out prior to the start of the program.
