YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina

Leland Leaders In Training Camp

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we have had to make changes to our camp offerings for 2020 and this particular camp will no longer be offered this summer. New safety measures are being implemented and we encourage you to sign up for our Youth Day Camp instead of this particular camp for 2020; we look forward to offering this camp in 2021! 

The camp environment provides a unique opportunity for teens to build leadership skills, particularly in assisting counselors with younger campers. The Y’s LIT program operates hand-in-hand with our Youth Day Camps providing young leaders the opportunity to mentor younger kids, participate in daily activities, and help counselors execute programming. Leaders in Training Day Camp goals are to teach general leadership skills that can be used at school, home and within the community- not just at camp! The LITs will always have an adult counselor with them and this Y camp program gives teens the opportunity to build their skills, confidence and capacity for working with people of all ages. Registration in this program is on an application basis only and spots are limited.

Financial Assistance

At the Y, we think summer fun, new friends and positive role models should be available to every child. That's why we provide scholarships to families who need help making camp a reality. If your family needs a little help, scholarships are available at our Membership Desk at the Nir Family YMCA and Midtown YMCA and are kept completely confidential. Funds are made possible because of the generous donations made through our Annual Giving Campaign. You can send a child to camp by making a tax-deductible gift online to the Y's Annual Giving Campaign.
