YMCA Camp Lincoln Summer Camp


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.

Junior Counselor in Training

14 years old by June 15

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.


Senior Counselor in Training

15 years old by June 15

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 info@ymcacamplincoln.org for more information.
