Our ‘LT’ Program is designed for a small number of Maine Teen Campers who are selected to participate for a full summer program centered on developing individual leadership skills, teamwork skills, and fostering a deeper understanding of how the camp community works.
LT’s participate in specialized programming that combines group lessons on leadership/teamwork, planning of special events, and regular camp classes. LT’s will assist MTC staff in teaching program areas of special interest or expertise, and serve as peer mentors for younger campers in cabins and activities.
LT Program participants frequently continue their MTC experience as counselors and staff members after completing the program and taking a 3-year break.
Applicants must be at least 16 years of age by the start of camp, and must not be older than 17, and submit an LT application with letters of reference. Preference is given to 17-year-olds, but all applicants are given fair consideration.
There is a special reduced tuition fee for LT Program participants.
