LEADERS IN TRAINING (L.I.T.) This leadership program is perfect for youth who are ready to take on a bit more responsibility while still enjoying the benefits of being a part of Buehler YMCA Day Camp! Field trips, service projects and a chance to develop leadership skills are all important aspects of this unique program. Our LITs will shadow counselors and help organize games and activities for our younger campers. They will have weekly meetings with their LIT mentor who will facilitate their growth in the program and help create activities and competitions for the entire camp to enjoy! Before registering for this program, prospective Leaders in Training candidates must call to arrange an appointment for an interview with Annie Yung at 847.410.5233. During the interview, responsibilities will be discussed and a job description reviewed.

Our goal is to create a workplace atmosphere for LITs to learn and gain real-life experience in a work environment. Our Leaders in Training must possess a good attitude and be a positive role model for our younger campers.

FUN ym

Looking for an overnight, resident camp experience for your child or your family this summer? The YMCA of Metro Chicago has five resident camp options in beautiful pristine areas sure to provide special memories to last a lifetime.

YMCA CAMP DUNCAN

Since 1921, Camp Duncan has provided safe, quality camping programs for boys and girls ages 7 to 15 and Teen Adventure Camps for 15 to 17 year olds. All activities are geared to the developmental level of the campers. Camp Duncan is a co-ed, summer resident camp located near Fox Lake, Illinois, on 300 acres.

YMCA CAMP MACLEAN

Camp MacLean is located just two miles east of Burlington, Wisconsin, just 20 minutes from Lake Geneva, on 247 acres of woods and grassland property. The camp offers fun and challenging activities such as swimming, climbing, boating, kayaking, archery, hiking, and much more. We also leave room for plenty of traditional programs, including sing-alongs, campfires and campouts.

YMCA CAMP PINEWOOD

Traditional but up-to-date, Camp Pinewood features 16 cabins on a private, spring-fed lake, with every activity from sailing to horseback riding. The camp is nestled in the heart of the Manistee National Forest near Muskegon, Michigan. It’s convenient but remote enough to ensure that everyone enjoys the natural beauty of the camp’s 200-acre facility.

YMCA FAMILY CAMP NAWAKWA

Family Camp Nawakwa offers a unique experience- an opportunity to bring together whole families, not just children, through camping. The camp sits on 180 acres of pristine forest lands, and includes wetlands and lakes with abundant wildlife. The camp is nestled in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin, which is home to the Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians.

YMCA CAMP INDEPENDENCE

CHGO01

Camp Independence is a special place for campers age seven and up with spina bifida. At camp, kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group. We teach self-reliance, a love for nature, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character. Our counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.
