With the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility as our guide, we work with you every day to help your children have fun while realizing their potential.
It can be hard to figure out your place in the world. As a young person with your whole life ahead of you, having the right guidance and support can make a real difference in figuring out who you are and what you can achieve. Whether kids come to the Y looking to explore their interests, or for support in navigating challenges, the Y is committed to nurturing children and teens and roots for their success.
LEADERS’ CLUBYMCA Leaders’ Club provides teens ages 13-18 with knowledge, training, communication skills and valuable team-building experience through volunteering in Y programs and the community. Leaders’ Club trains teens to better serve their community and the Y as they encourage each other to make a positive impact for present and future generations. Qualifying leaders may participate in Blue Ridge Leaders’ School, a week-long school held in June that is run by the South Field YMCAs with a main focus on fitness and leadership development.

COUNSELOR IN TRAINING (CIT) This camp teaches enthusiastic young people leadership skills and the fundamentals of working with children in a camp setting. CITs are paired with a counselor in Camp Red Feather to develop skills in areas such as implementing daily camp activities such as group games and crafts, first aid and child relations. Participants build character and grow as they work with children and their peers. Most of all, they develop their leadership skills and confidence in leading a group.
