Leaders of tomorrow are teens today. YMCA Camp Lincoln gives young people the opportunity and responsibility to develop leadership qualities in a supportive environment through the counselor-in-training (CIT) programs. These programs are highly desired and competitive.


All participants must be 14 years old by June 15

4-week session 

June 24-July 19, 2024 or

July 22-August 16, 2024


This program is for 14 year olds only. Junior CIT participants learn team building, communication skills and the confidence they need to work with peers and with children. Junior CITs are integrated into the camp program and get hands-on experience. They work in the cabins, lead activities and have a chance to learn from experienced staff. Junior CITs must commit to a four-week session, and may only participate in one session of Jr CIT. Once a camper has partipcated in the Jr CIT program, they may not return to camp as a traditional or specialty camper.

The Senior CIT program prepares teens with development in character, life skills and strong leadership values. Senior CITs apply their training in program areas and leadership tasks throughout camp. They learn to push themselves as they gain confidence, independence, leadership, and a positive outlook. It’s strongly recommended that applicants complete the Junior CIT program before completing the application for this highly competitive program. Senior CITs must commit to an eight-week session. Please contact YMCA Camp Lincoln at 603-642-3361 or for more information.
