New! Leaders in training program
Our new Regenstein Learning Campus lends itself to an updated Leaders in Training (LIT) program. Over the course of two weeks, participants will immerse themselves in camps every morning, then work with the LIT coordinator every afternoon on a new topic focusing on life skills that will help them in future job searches, taking leadership roles at school, and in college preparation.
Upon review of applications, interviews will begin in January, and placement will be confirmed within two weeks of the interview. Please note: a mandatory training takes place on June 10, 2017.
For an application and further information regarding the LIT program, please contact the camp manager at (847) 835-8361. The cost of the two-week, full-day program is $400.
LIT Session Dates
June 19 – 30

Read excerpts from a letter from an LIT applicant:
"I would like to participate in the Leaders in Training Program. When I was little (first grade), I loved science so my mom signed me up for Camp CBG. I knew the garden pretty well since we had a membership. I remember the first activity we made at camp, a fossil with plaster of Paris with shells, ginkgo leaves, and other leaves. After that, I knew I found something I wanted to do for the rest of my life, a career in science. I don't know what field, but something gave me the best feeling, like a kid getting his favorite toy, only better. I want to do this because I love to do it; it's the best science camp ever!"
