Week 1 & 2
Dive into scripture and learn biblical qualities that apply to camp work and camp ministry. Put these qualities into practice, serving behind-the-scenes in different ministry zones at Rivers Edge.

Leaders In Training 2

Once you have completed the first year of the LIT program, you can return to Rivers Edge for LIT 2, where you'll have the opportunity to serve at camp for most of the summer!
What can I expect?

Over the course of the summer, you will work in a hands-on capacity, in an area chosen by your leaders- such as programming, cabin leading, food services, etc. You will experience what happens behind the scenes, attend morning staff meetings and see the preparation that goes into a week of camp. When you have completed the LIT program, you can apply to work as a staff member the following summer.
