Inspired by past campers who wanted to give back (and didn’t want to stop coming to Day Camp!), the Leaders in Training (LIT) Program gives teens the opportunity to mentor and teach younger campers while learning about science and leadership skills. Our LIT’s are a large part of what makes Bird Conservancy’s Summer Camps such an incredible experience for our campers both new to and experienced in the world of birds!
All LITs will participate in a training to get them ready for the summer season. LIT training will take place on Friday, May 31, 2024 at the Environmental Learning Center in Brighton, CO. Following that, LITs will sign up to assist with one or more Day Camp(s) throughout the summer. Furthermore, once the summer sessions have finished, our LIT’s have the opportunity to help with our Winter Break Camp as well as other community events throughout the rest of the year!
Prospective LITs should apply to the program online. Space is extremely limited, so we encourage early applications. Applications open February 15, 2024.
