Summer Leadership Conference 2022

Join us at YMCA Camp Mason

August 22 – 26, 2022

Join Us! In Person!

I’ve got exciting news, y’all! We will be holding our Summer Leadership Conference in-person this year with programming looking very close to a typical teen institute camp – that means cabins, process groups, and all the LMTI greatest hits!


There are COVID safety protocols that we’ll need to have in place, particularly to ensure participants, volunteers, advisors, and staff arrive healthy to camp. Given the nature of changing guidelines, we expect that guidance is likely to adjust in the coming months. So, we’ll be providing monthly updates and will communicate if/when things change.

Health & Safety (updated 5/13/22)

Here’s the important information that reflects where we stand NOW on our camp health & safety protocols:

The NJ Department of Health has lifted COVID-19 restrictions for summer camps in 2022, but recommends a variety of safety protocols as per CDC guidelines. As such, EVERYONE who attends LMTI’s 2022 Summer Leadership Conference is to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test on their day of arrival to camp. LMTI is providing rapid tests at no cost to those attending.

  • For students coming by bus with their LMTI advisor they will test and answer screener questions prior to getting on the bus and traveling to camp.
  • Those driving to camp independently or without their LMTI advisor will be tested upon arrival to camp under the supervision of our healthcare team.
  • Presenters and other guests who are staying for an extended amount of time will also test upon arrival under the supervision of our healthcare team.

Vaccines 

While proof of vaccination is no longer required to attend the LMTI Summer Leadership Conference, we strongly recommend that all staff, advisors, and participants be fully vaccinated. Vaccination is considered the best way to protect oneself from the risks of COVID-19, up to and including death, as well as the best way to stop the spread of the virus.


We also strongly recommend that all attendees provide the requested COVID-19 vaccination information on their health forms. As per health recommendations by the state of New Jersey and the CDC, anyone who is exposed to COVID-19 at camp who has provided proof of vaccination is NOT required to quarantine and return home, unless they demonstrate symptoms of illness or test positive. Anyone who is exposed to COVID-19 at camp who has NOT provided proof of vaccination must quarantine immediately and be picked up from camp by a parent or guardian.
