Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Program

CIT Applications are now Available

Teens are a valuable part of our community! The Y Summer Camp at OLEC's Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program provides leadership training for teens. In effect, CITs stand on a bridge between camper and staff. CITs gain valuable counseling skills needed to ensure a smooth transition to future staff positions. 

The CIT program is for those interested in helping to bring the magic of camp to our campers.  There is an expectation of increased maturity and ability to be a positive role model. CITs are monitored and evaluated by all staff. Evaluations are a basis for hire as a Counselor for the following summer.

The CIT Program is not for everyone- candidates must be ready and willing to put the needs and interests of campers ahead of their own.

Completed Applications should be dropped off at the YMCA, 62 Turner St, Auburn, ME OR emailed to Jaime O'Connor at joconnor@alymca.org before June 1st. Payment is not due when applications are submitted. 

All teens registering for the Counselor In Training program will be contacted for an interview before being accepted into the program. Once approved, CITs can register for any number of our nine-week sessions and payment will be needed. 

Fee for the Counselor-in-Training Program:

  • Members: $95/session
  • Non-Members: $105/session

If you have any questions about the Counselor-in-Training Program, please contact Jaime O'Connor at joconnor@alymca.org.
