Camp Klotty Pine is Seeking Young Leaders for its LIT Program!

2017 Camp Dates Have Been Set! Camp will be held August 5-10 in Wautoma, WI.

New in 2017, Camp Klotty Pine will be kicking off a Leader-In-Training (LIT) Program! Any former camper from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan or Illinois, between the ages of 15-17 who wants to strengthen their leadership skills may apply for our specially designed training program.

The program acts as a stepping stone for young leaders interested in becoming a counselor at Camp Klotty Pine. Youth in the LIT Program will learn about positive behavior management, interpersonal relationships, and maintaining a safe and fun environment for our campers. The program will offer three training sessions throughout the year before participants spend the week at camp.

If you are ready to put your leadership skills into action, contact Karin Koppen at or 414.937.6782 to discuss LIT and Camp Counselor positions.
