Camp Harrison is looking for Leaders-in-Training—could your rising junior be one? Their 4-week L.I.T. program is an excellent opportunity for young people to develop their spirit, mind, and body through leadership development. Thought-provoking activities include:
– Faith development and discipleship
– Team building exercises
– A special excursion
– Guest speakers
– Written assessments of personal strengths
– Goal-setting exercises for the next phase of life
At the end of this program, L.I.T.s leave with a better understanding of themselves, as well as their unique strengths. As a result, the L.I.T. program is not limited to those who want to be camp counselors—it’s open to anyone interested in nurturing his or her leadership potential.
About Camp Harrison
Located between Lenoir and North Wilkesboro in North Carolina, YMCA Camp Harrison at Herring Ridge gives kids ages 6-16 the chance to make life-long memories on over 2,000 acres of land, streams, and trails just 90 miles from Charlotte in the mountains of North Carolina.
When children join YMCA Camp Harrison, they can expect to enjoy God’s creation, build relationships and challenge themselves as they learn new skills. Our campers develop lifelong friendships by embracing authenticity and accepting their differences. While many of our visitors join us as guests, they leave as family.
As a Christian organization, we want each camper to understand what it means to have a relationship with Christ. Morning watch, vespers services and nightly cabin devotions highlight our Christian values through the study of God’s Word, worship songs, testimonies and more.
