The Counselors-in-Training program is a leadership opportunity for youth to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become a camp counselor. All ‘Counselors-in-Training’ (CITs) must complete the CIT training program; training dates will be shared through the interview process. Following the training, they will take part in a two-week placement at one of our locations. Participants are placed in different day camp programs based on their experience in the CIT Program and the ‘Leaders-in-Training’ (LIT) program. Completion of Grade 7 is required. Counselors-in-Training are volunteers.
Interested youth must register in-branch or online in the CIT Application course; all applicants will be contacted for an interview. Successful candidates will then register for the CIT program and will be required to complete a police security clearance. For more information, please contact your local YMCA.
