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 our young leaders the opportunity to mentor younger kids, participate in daily activities and help counselors execute programming. Leaders in Training Day Camp goals focus on teaching the 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 skills, confidence and capacity for working with people of all ages. Registration for this program is on an application basis only and spots are limited.

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.
