The summer camp environment provides a unique opportunity for youth to build leadership skills by gaining hands-on experience assisting our team of camp counselors with our younger campers. Open to registered summer day campers entering grades 7-8, the goal of the Y’s Counselor in Training (CIT) program is to teach teens leadership skills that can be used at school, home and in the community.
In order to apply to participate in the Counselor in Training Program, prospective participants must:

- Submit a CIT application
- Submit two letters of recommendation from a teacher, coach or pastor

Applications and accompanying materials must be submitted by Friday, April 26.
