Elite Teen Program

Over 60 E.L.I.T.E. Teens (Excellent Leaders In Training Everyday) grades 9th through 12th participate yearly in our leadership program. One week of the summer camp season is dedicated to the ELITE Teens.  During this week, the ELITES participate in a mini-training to help them assist in the programming at Holiday Home Camp.

The ELITE Teen’s are essentially “counselors in training,” and are expected to attend a normal week of summer camp to show the skills they’ve learned through the ELITE Teen Program.  Additionally, the ELITE’s meet monthly, either at camp or in Chicago, for events that focus on the following themes: team building, job preparation and career talks, volunteering and giving back, manners and etiquette, conflict resolution, interviewing and college visits.
