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.
