Camp Counsellor-in-Training (CIT) Program (5 weeks) 15-17 years

The Camp Counsellor In-Training Program (PAM-DAFA) was created for 15- to 17-year-olds who want to become camp counsellors. Certified by the Association des camps du Québec (ACQ), this intensive training allows participants to work in a camp the following summer.

PAM camp is a five-week program and includes a three-day trip* to Camp YMCA Kanawana in Saint-Sauveur.
