We are proud to offer the Leader-in-Training program as a Grade 11 Leadership High School Course. These campers, known throughout camp at LITs, must be turning 16 years old in the calendar year, and spend two sessions (24 days) at Camp Big Canoe. This is a comprehensive leadership program that prepares participants to take a leadership role within any organization. The LITs will spend time learning about effective communication, team building, and conflict resolution strategies. They will come to understand the benefits of cooperation, organization, and planning when it comes to setting goals and achieving them as either an individual or group.

As part of the program, the LITs take on more responsibility around camp. The first 12 days is often spent together in discussion and preparation for taking on a larger role in their second session. In the second 12 days, LITs will be assigned to a camper unit or program area where they will assist the staff members in creating the Camp Big Canoe Spirit experience. Successful completion of this program not only means a high school credit, but leads to greater confidence and self-awareness.

Character Development: This program helps build the following traits

  • Responsibility: LIT's will be responsible for what they take out of learning opportunities presented to them. Planning, organizing and leading various activities around camp and ultimately, taking a leadership role with a camper unit.
  • Interpersonal skills: Learning how to listen to and work with others to plan, solve problems and deliver quality programs will increase the LIT's interpersonal skills. These will be transferable to school, other places of work and volunteer roles.
