Day Camp

University Liggett School's Day Camp has been the standard of summer fun for generations. And it’s no wonder!

Each session is two weeks.

All Day Camp Staff are licensed teachers in the State of Michigan and dedicated coaches from local schools. Couselors are carefully screened college and high school students who love working with children.

Counselor In Training (C.I.T.)

Registration for our Counselor-in-Traning program is closed. All sessions are full. We have started a waitlist and if a spot opens up you will be contacted by our Summer Programs staff. 

Our Counselor-in-Training program is designed for rising 7th and 8th graders. These are kids who are in the transition years, between being a camper, and becoming a potential employee. The CIT program will offer an introduction into the work environment of a camp counselor. They will learn skills that will benefit them, should they apply for Junior Counselor or Counselor positions in the future. The program will promote peer bonding and personal development. CITs will learn through work responsibilities, orientations, scheduled training, as well as rotating mentorships with assigned counselors, and adult activity heads.

All CITs must complete an orientation/training session, given by the camp director, prior to the beginning of camp. The minimum commitment is one full session.
For rising 7th and 8th graders
June 24 – August 2nd, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Cost: $300 per session
