YMCA Camp Eberhart has two programs designed to provide leadership opportunities that prepare teens to become staff members at Camp.


Formerly called “Counselor-In-Training”, our Leadership Core program is for teenagers entering 11th grade and is designed to give them a camp experience tailored to youth in leadership and the opportunity for adventure!  Leadership Core campers will complete an on-site service project, spend a day working with our local Habitat for Humanity, and experience hands-on training in the areas of communication, teen leadership, environmental stewardship, and community service.  The highlight of this amazing two week program is a 2-night, 3-day canoe trip on one of our most pristine rivers in western Michigan!  Space is limited and sessions will fill!


Our Staff-In-Training (SIT) program is a fantastic opportunity for youths to shoulder responsibility, work with young children, learn leadership and most importantly: begin their training to become future YMCA Camp Eberhart summer camp counselors! Days spent as an SIT will be packed with an exciting array of activities and unique challenges. Learn more here, and if interested be sure to fill out the application and return to the YMCA Camp Eberhart office via mail or email.  Spaces are limited and sessions are sure to fill!
