COUNSELOR IN TRAINING (CIT)

At the Jackson YMCA, we place a great deal of importance upon this program because it trains young men and women to be leaders, and it is through this training that many future staff members are cultivated. It is with this in mind that we are always trying to improve the quality of our program. We feel that 2016 will be another great year for creating the future leaders of our camp and for providing our oldest campers with an opportunity for personal growth and achievement. Candidates must be at least 14 years old by the start of summer. All applicants must apply to be a CIT and convey the 4 core values; honesty, caring, respect, and responsibility, candidates must also enjoy working with kids and have experience with summer camp. Applications can be found at the front desk of the Y. All applications must be turned in by May 5th in order to be considered for an interview, any questions about the CIT program please contact Abby Briggs at abby@jacksonymca.org.
