Teen Leadership/CIT Program

YMCA Camp Immokalee’s Teen Leadership/CIT program provides campers age 16 and 17 the opportunity to develop leadership and goal management skills necessary for success in college, career, and community.

The Teen Leadership/CIT participants receive 2 weeks of programming and curriculum focused on the leadership skills necessary to be a leader of self and then a leader of others. Flexible thinking, problem-solving, and goal management are also key skills taught during this program through the development of a camp-based service learning project.

After successful completion of the Teen Leadership/CIT program, participants can apply to become volunteers at camp following successful completion of the required Level 2 clearance screening required by the State of Florida for any volunteer or staff working with youth.
