JCC Camps at Medford
When you're a kid, every summer matters.

Gesher/LIT Program

(Age: 14)

Formerly known as our Counselor in Training Program, our new updated and exciting Leader in Training (LIT) Program gives entering ninth graders the chance to experience leadership training, pre-job training, and lots of fun and bonding all in one summer experience.  This summer we will also be introducing an outstanding Teen Philanthropy program in which the LITs will learn all about social justice issues around the world and ways they can give back.  Join us for an incredible summer!
