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’ CLUB YMCA 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) Teens aspiring to be future camp staff members have the opportunity to get advanced training. CITs shadow a camp counselor during the day and learn the appropriate skills and knowledge needed to become a day camp counselor. Each week, CITs will attend workshops and work closely with counselors to develop skills in areas such as implementing daily camp activities, discipline, first-aid and child relations. CITs will also have opportunities to attend special events and field trips. All participants will receive an evaluation at the end of the summer. Participation does not guarantee a staff position, but is looked upon favorably.
