The Gateway Region YMCA 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. 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. CIT's will focus on developing their role in camp and creating a fun and positive experience for younger campers. CIT program participants at our branch can be ages 14-16.

CIT families will need to complete this application and submit by May 1, 2022. Once application is submitted, the Camp Director for your selected branch will contact you and schedule a time for your interview and screening to finalize the selection process. *Please note that not everyone interviewed will be selected for the program.*
