Teen Leaders

LEADERS MADE HERE

At YMCA Camp Thunderbird, teens gain valuable leadership skills while developing their work ethic.

YMCA Camp Thunderbird is proud to offer a progressive Leaders In Training program for 13-15 year old campers through our Day Camp program. Each level of LIT will have unique experiences & development opportunities. Our goal is to develop teens into talented & confident leaders through exposure to new roles and responsibilities at Day Camp.

LIT-1 DISCOVER | Ages 13 - 15 (in their 1st summer experiencing LIT)
  • YMCA Member Fee: $565
  • Non-Member Fee: $640
LIT-1s may attend 1 session that is 2 weeks in length, per summer. There are 6 LIT-1 spots per session.
  • Session 1: 6/11/18 - 6/23/18
