Leader in Training (LIT) Program
Welcome to LIT 2023!
Who is it for?
This program is for anyone who is ready to let God use them to do amazing things at Pleasantview this summer! We are looking for passionate people who care for kids, are team orientated, are willing to stay up late, get up early, and use their gifts to share the gospel. It is at camp that future LITs (that’s you!) will find community, grow in their faith, and develop new skills. If a summer filled with friendship, ministry, laughter, and growth in your relationship with God sounds good… then this is the place for you!
Applicants must be at least 15 and going into grade 10 in 2023.
What is lit all about?
This is a discipleship program that will challenge you and help you discover what it means to follow Jesus and how to use your gifts to serve others. You will grow and develop through Bible studies, team building, training sessions, service opportunities, and awesome community. LIT is about growing closer to God and learning how to share the gospel with others, while also getting to have fun and spending your summer making a difference. During the two weeks of training, you will have the opportunity to serve in the different areas of camp.
when does LIT Run?

- Staff Training 1: June 16 @ 6:30 p.m. - June 17 @ 9:00 p.m.*
- Staff Training 2: June 28 @ 6:30 p.m. - July 1 @ 7:30 p.m.*

The two LIT weeks are specifically dedicated to studying God’s Word and learning about Camp Ministry. The one or more weeks spent at camp following LIT training will give participants the opportunity to be in a cabin under the leadership of a senior cabin leader.
*Staff training typically spans 1 week. However, due to the school calendar, staff training week will be broken up into two parts as layed out above.
