INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLYING TO BE A CAMP NEJEDA LEADER IN TRAINING
A message from Uncle Jim:
Dear Senior Campers (15 year olds)
Again in 2016, we will invite a limited number
of sixteen year old campers to return as participants in our “Leaders-in-Training”
Program (LIT). The program is designed
as the first step in becoming a junior counselor. The fee for this program is the same as
a regular two week camp session. The
campers who apply and are selected as LITs are also welcome to attend the 14 -
16 year-old Session 4 in 2016.
If you are interested in applying for the 2016 LIT
program, and you are a non-smoker, please following the instructions below:
1. Write a letter explaining why you would like to be a 2016 LIT candidate and what you
feel you can offer to camp.
2. Include a completed LIT application (download the LIT application here)
3. Include a recent photo of you
4. Include 3 letters of reference from counselors, school teachers, employers or other supervisors.
All of the above must be received at camp by January 15, 2016.
Your past experiences at Camp Nejeda,
along with the application and letters of reference, will be evaluated and a
personal or phone interview will be arranged in late January. The selected LITs will be notified of their
acceptance in early February of 2016.
Remember, even if you are not selected as part of the
program in 2016, you may still apply as a camper for session 4. If you are selected for the LIT program, more
information will be sent to you.
2016 Camping Dates are:
LIT Program A: July 10 to July 22,
LIT Program B: July 24 to Aug.
Session 4 (14 to 16 yr. olds):
Aug. 7 to Aug. 19, 2016
Have a great year at school and don’t forget to write to
me at camp before Dec. 30, 2015.
