Our Leaders in Training (LIT) program is the first step in our leadership program at Camp Albemarle. The purpose of
our leadership program is to cultivate young men and women with a desire to follow Christ at camp and in their
everyday lives. Our LITs will learn what it means to be a learning and developing Christian leadership skills over a
three-week period.

 

The first week campers will have leadership training sessions geared towards improving everyone’s
strengths and overcoming weaknesses. LITs will also be participating in regular camp activities through the week as
well. During week two, LITs will be going off site providing community service to local organizations around the
Crystal Coast. It is important LITs understand that Jesus came to serve, and they need to lead by His example.
Organizations may include, Habitat for Humanity, Hope Mission Ministries, the Carteret County Animal Shelter, some
projects on site at Camp Albemarle and many others. Their last week of camp will be a backpacking trip across the
Neusiok Trail and Camping out at Shackleford Banks. LITs get the opportunity to put their new skills into actions by
being a leader of the day and guide their fellow members through the local forests and across the Island. *Most gear
will be provided. *

 

Leaders In Training are organized in a family group. The family group typically consists of 5 boys and 5 girls with a
male and female counselor. Family groups participate in all activities together and are housed separately by gender in
cabins or platform tents.
