Leaders in Training
Entering Grads 9-11
Improve your leadership skills and learn the essentials of being a Camp Counselor. During the first week learn valuable skills in First Aid, CPR, group facilitation, and camp specific elements while also participating in team building activities. During the second week, shadow a Camp Counselor, lead a group of campers, and assist in a large camp one night overnight. At the end of the program participants receive a personal evaluation from Camp Directors and information on volunteering the rest of the summer.
Successful completion of the LIT program will give you a good foundation for future volunteer and leadership opportunities at the YMCA, and is great experience for graduates who may apply for positions within the Y.

Your Summer Adventure Starts With a Few Easy Steps:
Complete the Camp Reservation & Safety Pack
To ensure the safety of your camper, these forms must be completed and signed by a parent or guardian. Be sure to select drop off locations where applicable.
THESE SIGNED FORMS ARE REQUIRED EVEN IF YOU RESERVE ONLINE:
•Youth Information Sheet
•Camp Deposit Payment Form
•Sunscreen Authorization Form
Some camps may require additional forms and/or waivers, those can be found under PDF downloads under those specific camps.
Reserve your Camps
Reserve your camp spot online
Or by taking your Reservation Packet to your local YMCA family branch.
To complete the registration process, all necessary forms must be completed, signed, and delivered to your local YMCA family branch two weeks before your camper’s first program session begins. If you’ve registered online, we still require hard copies of the forms (emailed, mailed, faxed or brought to the branch) for state licensing and safety reasons.
Make your Final Payment
Payment is due two weeks before the start of your camper’s scheduled session. If you’ve reserved your spot online, your credit card will be billed automatically according to the billing schedule.
