YMCA OF GREATER MONMOUTH COUNTY is proud to offer the Role Model In Training Program for campers who are interested in becoming a summer camp counselor. The RMIT program has been developed for teen campers who demonstrate strong leadership abilities and have a desire to work with children.  This program assists teens in learning and developing the necessary skills to work with children as a camp counselor or, as we call them, Role Models.

RMITs must be flexible, talented, energetic, and caring candidates who want to make a difference in the lives of the children. Simultaneously, RMITs acquire life skills and on-the-job leadership training relevant to the mission and values of the Y. During a weekly session, RMITs may earn their certification in First Aid & CPR, learn and participate in team building activities, develop and practice group management techniques, learn problem solving & de-escalation tactics, discuss current events, build cover letters & resumes, and partake in program & activity creation and delivery. RMITs will be paired with camp Role Models, Specialists, and Directors in order to gain experience working with campers in different settings. Successful completion of the Role Model In Training Program will allow candidates to apply as a camp Role Model when they are of employment age.

To apply for the Role Model In Training Program, please reach out to our Camp Coordinator to RSVP to Training & Orientation.

Assistance is available for those who demonstrate need. Please know that all information is kept confidential. > Learn more

To improve the quality of programming we provide to our families, The YMCA of Greater Monmouth County has made the decision to partner with a company called CampDoc. CampDoc is a YMCA Preferred Vendor and is the leading Electronic Health Record (EHR) system for camps. Designed by camp doctors, nurses and directors, CampDoc provides a secure and easy-to-use web-based solution which manages health forms, allergies, medications, and illness/injury tracking for our camps and programs both throughout the summer and during the off season.

After your registration is processed, you will receive an email from CampDoc to create your camper’s Health Profile. All parents are required to complete CampDoc forms for each of their children attending summer camp. All information in the health profile is kept confidential, and health details are shared with staff only when necessary, for proper care and safety.

If you do not receive an email, please check your junk/spam mail folder. CampDoc sends out periodic reminder emails for incomplete health information. These notifications come from CampDoc, so please add them to your safe sender list to avoid accidental delivery to junk and spam folders.
