Our Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program is designed to develop tomorrow’s leaders who are considering a career in youth development. Teens who are involved in this program participate in a variety of camp activities as well as learn alongside our experienced staff. Many of our staff started in the CIT program where they learned the necessary skills to be a great counselor: leadership, organizational, problem-solving and being a team player. CIT's will be assigned to a senior counselor to shadow each week where they will be exposed to the full range of counselor experience. The CIT's will assist in the welfare of the campers as well help in the execution of camp activities.
CIT's are chosen by completing the application below and returning the form, with references, to the Meadowlands YMCA Attn: Kris Logan.
