LIT Participants and Their Relationship with God

Leader In Training participants are expected to be developing their relationship with God and to have a desire to live by the standards set forth in the Bible.

LIT Participants and Their Character

Our standard for all behaviour is taken from the Bible – the word of God. LITs are expected to cooperate with others and respect staff members. LITs will treat everyone at Medeba respectfully and not discourage or harm others with physical, emotional, or verbal abuse.

Any kind of abuse or abusive language is not acceptable (e.g. put-downs are unacceptable). Medeba strives to resolve behavioural problems with LITs promptly and effectively but reserves the right to dismiss a LIT for behavioural problems at the discretion of the Directors. No refund will be made for dismissals due to disciplinary action.

Our standard for all attitudes are to have a positive attitude towards the program. There are many different types of activities and sessions in the LIT program and every LIT will be expected to participate in all aspects of the program.

LIT Participants and Their Lifestyle at Medeba

Our standard for all personal electronic devices (such as cell phones or iPod’s) is that they are permitted but are only to be used during a designated period of time each day. Other electronics (such as TVs, monitors, and gaming devices) are not permitted. All media that is listened to or watched must be approved by an LIT staff unless it is produced under a Christian label. Any media should not glorify sin.

Our standard for accommodations is that LITs are responsible to clean their accommodations daily and keep their personal belongings tidy as they are sharing room with others.

Our standard for relationships is that LITs focus on the whole community and are inclusive in their friendships.

Our standard for having a dress code is to be professional in our outfits.

Our standard for curfew is that the LITs are in the HUB main room between 9:30-10pm, and to be in their own cabin between 10:15-10:30pm (to get ready for bed), and between 10:45-11pm to have the lights out. Occasionally earlier curfews may be given if staff detect extra sleep is needed.

Community Life

LIT is limited to a maximum of 18 participants. Separate accommodation for boys and girls is provided in the Hub and a staff member also lives with them. The Hub also has bathrooms and a large meeting room between the accommodation rooms.

General Information

Covid-19

As more information becomes available from the Ontario Government, Public Heath and the Ontario Camping Association, we will pass our plans on to you.

Safety of our campers is our priority. We intent to start this process through cohorting, enhanced cleaning/sanitizing, thorough training and making adjustments to our site to better allow for staff and campers to follow Public Health guidelines.

See more information about how Medeba is responding to Covid-19 for Summer 2021.

LIT Schedules for Parents 

A day by day calendar of LIT events is available for parents. Parents may pick these up on registration day or request one to be sent to them ahead of time. This is still being prepared as we make changes due to Covid-19. Please contact us if you are interested.

Connecting to your LIT

LITs really enjoy connecting with friends and family, especially because they are here for 4 weeks.

LITs have scheduled "media time" where they can use their devices to check their messages and/or make phone calls.

Visiting

Arrangements can be made with the LIT Director to visit. To protect the LIT cohort, they will not be allowed to go off-site.

LIT Group Picture

LIT group pictures can be ordered prior to camp. These 5" x 7" pictures taken by our camp photographer come in a frame and cost $8.50 (taxes included). Pictures can be paid for when you apply or during registration. 

Photo Memories

During the month of LIT, we create a cloud based photo album of pictures of the LITs and their activities. These pictures come from the camp photographer and from the LITs themselves to provide a large assortment.

Spending Money While at Medeba 

Spending money is needed for several reasons while at Medeba. We recommend approximately $120 be provided for the month. This will be deposited into a debit account for the LITs so they don't have to handle cash until it is needed. Any remaining money at the end of the stay is returned.

  1. Alpine Store - The camp store offers snacks, souvenirs and Medeba clothing.
  2. Laundry - LITs have the opportunity to do their laundry each week at the local laundromat. The cost for a load of laundry is around $5.00. Participants should bring their own detergent and supplies. Cash will be provided for them out of their tuck account.
  3. One meal at a fast food restaurant - This is to eat out on the way back from the LIT 1 canoe trip. $10 is recommended.

Leaving the Property 

LITs may not leave the property without permission and must be accompanied by a staff member. If LIT parents wish to visit or take LITs off property they may do so with permission from the LIT Director.
