Teens! Looking for a fun, learning opportunity over Summer? Apply to be an ENC Leader in Training (LIT) during Summer Nature Camp . There are weekly sessions from June 26 to August 17, and the committment is to volunteer for at least two of the weeks.
LIT's have been assisting with our Nature Camps since they were established in 1977. Community service is a great way to develop leadership skills and gain vital work experience. Our Leader in Training program provides local teens with the opportunity to gain these skills. More info and application on our website, http://encenter.org/volunteer-enc/students/leaders.
Who are we looking for? Teens, 14 yrs. or older, who wish to assist with the ENC’s Nature Camp, and have a positive impact on the lives and education of younger children.

What will you do? LITs perform a vital role in our Nature Camp program by assisting camp staff in activities and being role models.
How can you apply? Teens who are interested will complete an application. An adult that is not a family member must submit a reference form. Once these documents are received, and ENC staff person will call you to set up an interview. Experienced LIT's, that have volunteered as LITs at the ENC in the past, need not submit a reference form or interview.
