The Corina LIT Scholarship Program

The Corina Leader-In-Training (LIT) Scholarship Program was created to honor the legacy of Corina Stafford, a Camp EDMO™ LIT who exemplified curiosity, courage and most of all, kindness.

This scholarship program provides five, 2-week scholarships to youth entering 9th-12th grade in Fall of 2019 who meet the requirements of a Camp EDMO™ Leader-in-Training, but need financial assistance to participate.

Our Camp EDMO™ Leader-in-Training program is for those looking to build youth leadership and facilitation skills. Participating LIT’s learn about job skills, youth development methodology, leadership styles, team bonding methods and develop a deepened sense of responsibility for their role in camp and their community.

Corina Stafford's Legacy

Beyond being an extraordinary LIT at our Burlingame camp, Corina Stafford was the Class President of her school, an advocate for social justice, a singer, actress and dancer, and a daughter, sister, and granddaughter. She passed away unexpectedly on January 8, 2018 at just 14 years of age. As those who knew her remember, “Corina channeled her boundless energy into being a force for positive change…She was a force of nature, charged with a rare intensity, charisma and drive. And while she was the keeper of many exceptional qualities, the single most important to her was kindness. She braided it into everything that she did, and it is part of the legacy she leaves behind.”

I am in charge of how I feel. And I choose Happiness.
In every struggle lies a learning experience.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more in there is to celebrate.
I have the power to create change.
You have been assigned to this mountain to show others it can be moved.
I greet the day with confidence and love.
My inner light cannot be extinguished.
