Inspired by past campers who wanted to give back (and didn’t want to stop coming to Day Camp!), the Leaders in Training Program gives teens the opportunity to mentor and teach younger campers while learning about science and leadership skills.

In 2019, LITs will participate in a two-day “Boot Camp” to get them ready for the summer. Boot Camp will take place in July, with the option to camp overnight at the Environmental Learning Center in Brighton, CO. LITs will sign up to assist with one or more Day Camps, and end the summer with a campfire celebration in August. Prospective LITs should apply to the program online. Space is extremely limited, so we encourage early applications.

The LIT Program also falls under our Day Camps, please click here to download the 2019 Day Camp Parent Handbook.

Scholarships are available for all camps
Applications for scholarships can be made through our online scholarship application.
