Forever memories are made here!
Canterbury Hills Camp is a place of joy, creativity, adventure, and belonging. Our leaders model and create a culture where people are free to be themselves and accomplish more than they thought possible. Campers can take on new challenges because they have leaders who care for them and believe in them. With leaders who give their best in cabins, forests, fields, pools, creeks, and dining halls, campers thrive.

The Canterbury Hills Camp LIT program is an exciting, fun and rewarding way to develop leadership potential. The program includes daily learning sessions that include topics such as: personal care, teamwork, attitude, facilitation, behaviour responsiveness, communication, spirituality, wilderness skills, or problem solving. Learning continues throughout the day as LITs deploy their gifts, skills and enthusiasm through a wide variety of camp responsibilities such as: helping with site/program duties, supporting a staff team, assisting with cabin needs or participating as a leader with campers.

LIT Benefits include: 1) Learning and growing in a challenging and fun atmosphere with the benefit of being outdoors; 2) Participating in and contributing to a supportive and enriching community environment; 3) Exploring personal leadership potential with support from experienced mentors.
