YMCA Camp Timbers

Counselor-In-Training Program

This two-week camper experience at YMCA Camp Timbers is for those teens ready to be role models and interested in working with youth. Counselors-in-training (CITs) enjoy four days of the biggest and best camp activities, experience a three-day overnight canoe trip on the AuSable River, and spend six days learning and leading younger campers alongside our counselors.


To Apply

Interested teens 16+ years old, who have previous camper experience or equivalent, should email Timbers@SaginawYMCA.org.



See and experience YMCA Camp Timbers for yourself! You can learn a lot about camp by digging deeper into our website, but it isn’t quite the same as meeting a member of our staff face-to-face and enjoying a walk through the property. Let us show you why we love Camp Timbers and answer all of your questions.
