LITs are integrated into the camp program and receive hands-on experience working with CIT and counselors. LITs will have an augmented camp day that includes fun camp activities for themselves as well as learning portions of the day where they might be interacting directly with groups of children. By the time their session concludes, they will have the leadership skills necessary to become MetroWest YMCA community champions!
