“What can I do after my OC (Oldest Camper) summer?” This is a question we hear all of the time from our girls as they prepare to graduate out of their time as a camper at Kippewa.

Well… we have the answer!  Come back to camp as an LIT!

Our Leaders-In-Training (LIT) program is for teens entering 11th  grade in the fall, following their final summer as a camper at Kippewa. It’s a 21-day experience with 14 days spent touring around Costa Rica with our Cobbossee brothers, and 7 days at camp training and gaining real-life leadership and counselor experience.

We partner with Zeal Adventure & Travel for the Costa Rica portion of this program. Zeal provides the perfect balance of a traditional teen tour and life-changing adventure.  With their combination of summer camp, leadership training and adventure travel expertise the LITs return to Kippewa prepared to change the lives of the younger campers, while also experiencing a life-changing experience themselves.
