Leaders in Training

Training Future Foundation Leaders

In addition to providing a safe, fun, and educational experience for children living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, Camp Oasis is also dedicated to mentoring and shaping future camp counselors.

The Leaders in Training (LIT) program is a special leadership development program for Camp Oasis' oldest teenagers. It runs for the duration of each session and combines the enjoyment of camp life with age-appropriate responsibilities and leadership-building activities.

Applicants for the LIT program will undergo an additional review, related to their separate 1-page LIT application and phone interview, to determine whether the child has the qualities necessary for this more specialized program.

Not only can LITs participate in regular camp activities, but they can also attend leadership meetings, assist with special events, and entertain groups of younger campers. Since the age range for the LIT program varies by site, please see our Find a Camp page for further details.
