Beach CITs and Campers
The counselor in training program provides teens with the opportunity to make new friends, develop leadership and communication skills, participate in outdoor adventures, and have fun!   The program is perfect for teens who have aged out of our traditional day camp, yet still want to participate in all the fun that LPDC offers!  Camp hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Extended care is available from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m, at no extra charge.
