Training program

Join the Leaders in Training program today

Only three spots remain for Camp Invention’s Leaders-In-Training program.

Camp Invention will return to Ottumwa this summer, hosted at Evans Middle School June 20-24. Students entering 7th, 8th and 9th grade can participate in a week of hands-on fun as a leader-in-training this summer.

What is the LIT program?
The Leaders-in-Training (LIT) program allows your student in grades 7-9 to participate in Camp Invention in a whole new way. The LIT program is an opportunity for middle school students to gain real-world experience on how to be a positive mentor and coach. LITs help guide campers in their daily activities and support instructors in the classroom. It’s still a week of creativity and hands-on fun, but now there’s leadership training and goal-setting skills built in.

Here are a few things your child will experience and gain as Leaders-in-Training:

  • Work with experienced camp instructors to be a positive mentor and coach
  • Encourage and inspire children to push the limits of their imagination
  • Collaborate and ignite team spirit and fun
  • Receive program certification and an official letter of recommendation
