YMCA Fairfax County Reston Leadership Camps

COUNSELOR-IN-TRAINING

Campers are able to develop leadership skills as well as help motivate those around them. This camp helps promote the importance and positive impact volunteerism has on the community. Counselors-In-Training is a teen program specifically designed for our future leaders. This program sends your teen through a week of training in working with 5-12 year olds, camp songs, games & crafts and basics in First Aid & CPR (not a certification course).

JUNIOR LIFEGUARD

Seize the opportunity to learn the process to rescue a person from the water, be able to measure ph levels and understand everything that’s involved with becoming a lifeguard.

SUMMER OF SERVICE

At the heart of our mission is building community and it’s never too early to start! This is a great way to engage your teen in service work–our teens will work together to plan and execute multiple service learning projects benefiting organizations of their choice in just one short week.

YOUTH AND GOVERNMENT

Campers are given the chance to be a state representative and speak out on issues that matter to them.  We will come together to discuss what issues campers see in their community and write a bill.  After the bills have been written, we will research information on the bills and similar ones so we can debate their merits to have them passed into “law” here at the Y.
