Learn More

At Imagineerz… you’ll be eaten by zombies.


Or maybe not. Who knows?

We’re sure it’s a risk you’re willing to take!

Our LIT Program

Working with children is one of the best ways to learn leadership. Kids are pretty honest about what they like and how they feel. They’ll give you clear feedback about your interactions. Plus, you’ll get to play with them inside and outside the classroom!


You’ll Learn:

  • Leadership
  • Growth Mindset
  • Design Thinking
  • Child Management
  • Teamwork
  • Problem Solving
  • Initiative
  • Patience

Everyday we need you to...

  • Reinforce the notion that everyone at camp is a genius creator
  • Play and bond with the campers
  • Collaborate with counselors to make camp an epic experience


LITs work in teams, but specialize in one of two areas:

Making LITs

  • Help campers build life-size forts, backdrops, props and other epic creations 

Acting LITs

  • Help direct the camp performance for your room and participate in counselor skits

Grow Your Skills

In addition to leadership skills, you’ll learn the design thinking process, an effective problem-solving approach, as well as the Imagineerz philosophy, an approach to overcoming obstacles and reaching goals.


As an LIT, you’ll help counselors and campers. There’s room for you to decide how you want to grow your leadership skills. Like being in front of a group? Focus on public speaking, teaching, and entertaining. Prefer to work with others in a small group? Coach campers through obstacles and celebrate their i-can moments with them.
