Leaders-In-Training (LIT)

Completed Grade 10 or age 14 - 17 - Two-Week Camp Session

In our LIT program, short for "Leaders-In-Training", teens partake in various activities that help them develop into leaders not only at camp, but among their peers as well. Our LITs participate in team-focused activities that center around critical thinking and problem-solving, partake in leadership workshops, and get an insight in professional development (resume writing, cover letter writing, interviewing skills). While at camp, LITs are mentored by our Teen Programs Leader and their own cabin counselors. Additionally, our LITs will complete a service project during their program. This program is focused around camp, but will also incorporate ways that your teen can lead at home and school, once the program is over. Leaders in Training are encouraged to continue their growth as leaders and progress into our Camp Assistant (CA) program in future summers.”

Completed Grade 11 or age 16 - 17 - Three-Week Camp

Camp Erdman's Summer CA Program applications are now open! Camp Erdman's volunteer CA Program is a great way to gain leadership skills, gain experience in youth development, meet new friends, and have tons of fun! The program runs in two separate three-week blocks and consists of a week dedicated to learning what working in a camp environment is all about, followed by two weeks of hands-on experience.

Designed to develop future camp leaders, our staff teach teens how to effectively lead groups, work with kids, communicate with peers and practice servant leadership. During the 2nd and 3rd week, CA’s join a cabin with experienced staff to practice those skills and learn what it’s like to be a role model for young campers.

Our CA applications will be posted right here on the website on March 1 and will be open through April 14th.  The application consists of filling out the YMCA of Honolulu volunteer application as well as a Camp Erdman supplemental application.  Upon completing the supplemental application, please email the Director of Summer and Teen Programs, Drew Markey, the completed form and he will be in touch to schedule an interview after the application window has passed.
