Campers in Leadership Training
Campers in Leadership Training (CILT's) have the best of both worlds; the fun of going to summer camp, and the opportunity to be in training to be a counselor to the younger campers. CILT's spend part of their time in camp activities especially designed for teens, and part of their time teamed with an experienced counselor, learning firsthand the joys and responsibilities of being a YMCA Camp counselor in training.
