Second Year LIT

The Ryerson Summer Day Camps second year Leaders In Training program is a four-week long experience for 15 & 16 year olds offered twice each summer. A full-time Second Year LIT Facilitator delivers an extensive counsellor and leadership development program to participants. Participants receive a comprehensive manual to aid in their learning over their month at Camp.
