These skills may be used in all aspects of life, including home, school, sports, youth groups, work, and in the community. Issues specific to making a successful transition from camper to camp staff will be addressed as a CIT. LIT's will be mentored by the LIT/CIT Counselors and the LIT/CIT Coordinator.
