Leadership In Training (LIT)

The L.I.T. Program at Kawkawa is an exciting and intense two-week program centered upon the spiritual, character, and moral development of the individual. The first week will include learning about what makes and defines a leader; how to create and lead a devotional, personal development skills, how to effectively lead games and activities and several other seminars crucial to being a well-trained leader. The second week will be centered around putting into practice many of the tools learned in the first week. L.I.T. students will shadow a lead counselor for the week and assist in the daily program of Kawkawa. Between all the training, there will be scheduled times for waterfront activities, skills training (archery/riflery), group development activities and campfires. Limited to 15 students.

Kawkawa Camp and Retreat, Hope BC, LIT

Growing up in a Christian environment, I thought I knew it all, but the LIT program challenged my faith and work ethic. I gained new skills and knowledge that will be useful for the rest of my life in just 2 short weeks. I entered the LIT program with doubt, and left with a family and a new way to see God.
