Ages 13-14 | Available at Sports Camp, Camp Carr, and South Camp

Counselors in Training will have the opportunity to make new friends, build teamwork skills and have a great time being a part of the YMCA summer.  At the YMCA we take the Counselor in Training Program very seriously. We are looking for youth that embody our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.  This program gives participants the opportunity to place the needs of others ahead of their own, share what they have learned and be a role model for younger campers.

How to Become a CIT:

CIT Candidates must either download or request a CIT application. After it is complete it must be sent into the Deer Path Branch, Attn: Kristin Heimall, for review and consideration.

You will be contacted once your application has been reviewed and invited to a pre-camp training

Second Year CITs – may register at any point once registration is open. There is no need to reapply once you have been through the application process and participated as a CIT.

Please note that being part of the CIT program does not guarantee employment.

At Camp Carr the program is separated by first and second year CITs due to the popularity of the program.

The first year Camp Carr CIT program  has  been  developed  to  pay special attention to developing the leadership skills of participants. This program in comparison to second year CITs will focus on building leadership skills, learning about the developmental stages of children, exploring the benefits of volunteer experience and philanthropic opportunities.

Camp Carr second year CITs spend a large portion of their day interacting with age appropriate groups (campers 4 to 10 years old).  They will review skills learned from the previous summer, along with taking part in new activities that enhance leadership skills.

All Counselor in Training Sessions are one week options.
