As we release these applications, there is still quite a bit of uncertainty as to WHAT camp will look like this year. We know you have so many questions. Will we be able to meet in person at Camp Mason? Will we be limiting our capacity? Will we be meeting online as we did in 2020? Believe us, we have all of those same questions!
At this point, we just don’t know. It is our hope that we are able to gather at Camp Mason in August- but there are many considerations and factors that will impact our safe return to camp. We are preparing behind the scenes as we await further updates regarding camp safety, vaccines, and the overall status of the pandemic. Keeping our LMTI participants, volunteers, and staff safe is, of course, our number one priority, so we are being extremely cautious as we make any decision. If you enjoyed your experience at LMTI and would like to share what you learned with the 2021 group, we hope you will consider applying to be a CATS– and sticking with us as we figure out all of the details.
Thank you for your patience, and your commitment to LMTI.
Members of the College Age TI Staff (CATS) are a vital part of the success of the Lindsey Meyer Teen Institute. CATS are individuals who are ages 18-22 and have spent at least one year out of High School. CATS may or may not have attended a Teen Institute program in the past and serve as leaders and role models for current participants. CATS undergo an extensive interview, application, and training process to make them into the TI experts they are.
So much of the success of LMTI depends on volunteer staff – including our college age volunteers! Each year we select individuals from throughout the state to serve as CATS.
