Leader in Training Programs
Medeba’s Leader in Training (LIT) program is designed to develop leadership potential and encourage personal growth in young people. The program emphasizes the development of Christian and outdoor leadership skills through the use of adventure and community. It offers a balance of formal training, mentoring, and practical-hands on experience and is a great transition between being a camper and becoming a staff member.
We highly encourage any young person who has a desire to develop and use their leadership skills to consider this unique training opportunity. It will provide essential skills that can be used in any aspect of life, and specific training for those aspiring to be on Medeba staff. At the end of the program, successful participants will receive a certificate of completion, which will be a valuable addition to a resume.
LIT is an 8-week program that is broken into two-parts. It is usually taken over two summers, but may be taken in one summer if requirements are met.
