Welcome to the YMCA Camp Orkila CIT Homepage!

Thank you for visiting Camp Orkila's Counselor in Training (CIT) program website! Here you will find information on current sessions, as well as how to apply for future sessions.

The Counselor in Training program is the 4th step in Camp Orkila's Teen Leadership Progression. The program is designed for teens entering grades 11-12, who meet the eligibility requirements and have an interest in becoming a camp counselor.

As a Counselor in Training, participants will learn to build better relationships with peers, acquire and refine leadership skills, and model the YMCA's core values of respect, responsibility, honesty and caring to younger campers.
