Using Your Leadership Skills
The Camp Foley Leadership Program instills leadership skills that can be used not just at camp, but at school, on the job and in your personal life. LITs and CITs gain skills like organization, planning, creativity, presenting, teamwork, observation and more. The skills you gain in the Leadership Program can be used in a variety of places outside camp. Past LITs and CITs have used their Camp Foley Leadership Program experience when applying to National Honors Society, to college, for school honors programs and for jobs. You can use your Foley leadership experience for service hours and on your resume.
