Calling all high schoolers! The ENC is accepting applications for Winter Camp 2016-2017 “Leaders in Training”! Leaders in Training, or LITs, are high school students that help with kids’ Nature Camps during school breaks. If you are a high school student that is looking for a volunteer opportunity, loves nature, or hopes to build a resume, then this is the perfect option!
LITs get to have an amazing experience, as well as positively influence kids! While the campers grow in their nature knowledge, the LITs grow in their leadership, childcare, and teaching skills! LITs lead kids in all kinds of science and nature activities, crafts, and hikes.
Abby Flores, a past LIT, says that through this experience, she has learned a lot about science, nature, animals, protecting the environment, and especially kids. Her “favorite part of being a LIT (besides working with the kids) is being trusted with a lot of responsibility and being given freedom to take initiative…All of the camp teachers treat us like equals and are grateful to have us there, it’s a really great working environment.”
