The Leaders in Training (L.I.T.) program is designed for youth who will enter 9th and 10th grade in the Fall of 2018. This program is perfect for those who love to work with children and who wish to learn to be great future employees. L.I.T.s will assist counselors with a variety of responsibilities around camp. Fridays are our special events days, where each L.I.T. will assist a Traditional Camp group and co-lead games and special events. The following is a general idea of their daily schedule:​

“[My daughter] has had a fantastic summer at HPR. She is sad to see it coming to an end. You provide such a wonderful environment for the kids. The character-building, along with the pushing of personal limits and challenges that come along with camp have made a huge impact on her. Being an L.I.T. provided a great transition year for [her] – she sees herself more as a leader/helper now than as a child. I am not sure what her summer would have been like without HPR, but I know it was a lot more fun – and she is a better person for having been to HPR. We are glad you are here making such an impact on so many kids!”
