This is the first step in the program, and it is for students who have completed the 9th grade, but not yet 18. During two weeks at camp, each group of LIT’s will venture out on a 4-day/3-night backpacking trip, participate in activities around camp, live in a tipi village, complete a service project, and work with our day-camp program.
“I don’t think I could pick out a best part of the program. I enjoyed myself so much in LIT. I didn’t want to leave!” -LIT Camper
“I loved how small the groups were. I really felt a connection with everybody by the end of the two weeks. I also loved the opportunity to work with kids especially on campout night!” -LIT Camper
To apply for LIT, a parent must create a CampInTouch account and fill out the camper application. Once complete, navigate to the “Forms & Documents” section of your CampInTouch account. The applied camper must then fill out and submit the form called LTP supplemental questions. Once complete, the LTP director will contact the camper for a 15-20 minute phone interview. Simultaneously during this process, the camper will need to obtain 2 letters of recommendation. Once the online questions and interview are complete and the two letters of recommendation are submitted, then the LTP Director will notify the camper of their acceptance to the program. Campers are enrolled on a rolling base as they complete their applications. Spots for the program are not guaranteed until the camper is officially accepted and enrolled. If there are any questions about this process, feel free to email LTPdirector@ymcarockies.org.
