HAVE THE BEST SUMMER EVER AT THE LAKEWOOD FAMILY YMCA!

YMCA Camps provide quality camp experiences, which help children learn skills, develop lifelong friendships, and discover how to be their best while having fun, all while in a safe and supportive environment. Summer Camp runs from the week of June 18-August 31. Financial assistance is available.

Not only do these campers get to brainstorm and decide on some of the daily activities they want to do, but we have a great summer line up of specialty activities designed especially for this age group. Each day campers will have choices of activities to participate in and supervised free time to hang out with friends. They will have the chance to go on field trips throughout camp to explore adventures outside of the Y. *No camp July 4th.

Counselor in Training

Ages 14-17

Within this program, teens learn leadership, group management skills, child development basics, and policies and procedures in relationship to working with youth. Interacting with campers and representing the Y requires a certain level of maturity. For this reason, the fieldwork program is selective. Upon completion of the full two weeks of the CIT Training Course, teens will be invited to participate in the fieldwork program. CITs will be required to follow the camp staff dress code: solid, non-denim pants or shorts; unaltered Y CIT t-shirt, tennis shoes. Female CITS will be required to wear a one-piece bathing suit when applicable. Dress code and behavior expectations will be detailed during the training course. The program is designed so CITs enroll in at least one session of fieldwork upon completion of the training course.

Counselor in Training Dates:
Week 2 and Week 3: June 25-July 6
Week 7 and Week 8: July 30-August 10

Cost:
