Leaders in Training

Training Future Camp Oasis Counselors

In addition to providing a safe, fun, and educational experience for children living with inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, Camp Oasis is also dedicated to mentoring and shaping future camp counselors.

The Leaders in Training (LIT) Program is a special leadership development program for Camp Oasis’ oldest teenagers. It runs for the duration of each session and combines the enjoyment of camp life with age-appropriate responsibilities and leadership-building activities.

Not only can LITs participate in regular camp activities, they can also attend leadership meetings, assist with special events, and entertain groups of younger campers. Since the age range for the LIT Program varies by site, please see our camp sites listing for further details.

NOTE: The Colorado Camp Oasis does not currently operate an LIT Program, and the California Camp Oasis does not operate its LIT Program at the same time as the regular camper session. If you are from a region served by one of these locations, please contact your appropriate chapter for more information.
