Counselors in Training

The Counselors in Training (C.I.T.) program is for teens to experience day camp but will experience the knowledge, character development, guidance and encouragement to help children learn and achieve their full potential.

Teens in 6th through 9th grades are eligible to apply for the CIT program, a summer program that includes leadership training, CPR, First Aid and team-building exercises. Teens are accepted based on their desire and ability to interact with younger children at the YMCA Day Camps. Only a limited amount of applicants each year are selected for the CIT program. To register, contact your closest Y.

Day Camp for All

While our fees are based on the cost of providing each program, we believe that all children should have an opportunity to experience summer day camp. When Strong Kids financial assistance dollars are available, the YMCA will assist any family or individual who wishes to participate but who may have difficulty affording the fee. Please contact your closest YMCA to apply.
