*New for 2023!  Leader in Training Program (LIT) 2023  


Being an LIT at camp is a big deal! At Eagle Lake, it’s all about growing and learning in a motivating, enthusiastic environment. This LIT program will allow you to learn and develop the skills necessary to take on further responsibilities in a manner consistent with the goals and visions of ELRC.


This includes:
• Personal growth
• Developing as a leader
• Learning different age group characteristics
• Ringette and skating skill analysis
• Team work and team building techniques
• Program planning


This program will also help you apply your leadership skills to real life situation. This way you can use them in your every day life!

This is a unique role.

As an LIT, you will join a group of of future leaders like yourself, and together you will learn to ropes of basic leadership. You will spend half the week acquiring leadership skills and will put them to the test mid-week, when the program shifts to “in the field” leadership and you are assigned a designated cabin to assist campers and staff.

LITs at Eagle Lake will be helping our campers make the most out of their camp experience. This will help you, and the campers gain confidence and experience beneficial for camp, the ice and your everyday lives!

On the ice, you will be given the opportunity to assist on-ice instructors with their daily ice sessions through planning, skill analysis, observation and assisting. This may encourage some of you to become instructors yourself!

We tend to hire succesful graduates from our LIT program for future years.

This program is not a volunteer position and is not eligible for highschool volunteer hours.
