Age requirement: Must have completed your junior year of high school. This CIT program is an intense look into what it takes to become a counselor at YMCA Camp Lakewood. The four week course begins with two weeks of intensive child care skill training and program training. In the third week, CITs shadow camp’s best counselors in our youngest cabins while still receiving more hands-on training. In the final week, CITs will be put to the test by being assigned a cabin where they take on a leadership role. This is a highly rigorous program and all interested campers must complete an application/interview to be considered for the program.
Age requirement: Must have completed your sophomore year of high school. This two week LIT program is a challenging camp experience designed to mold future leaders. The LIT program emphasizes the importance of self-reliance and will push campers to evaluate themselves. This is an important step towards becoming a Camp Counselor. LIT is not a counselor training program! LIT’s will focus on their own development.
