levels 4 months +
StarfisH
For 15 year olds completing grade 9, the Junior CIT program helps campers
begin the transition from camper to staff roles. Activities are geared toward
the development of responsibility, self-reliance, self-awareness and increased
maturity. The emphasis is on learning and skill development, with training in
specialty areas of the camp. Weekly out-of camp trips (known as the “Adventure
Series”) are scheduled and include white water rafting, go-karting, and
waterslides.
4 - 12 months
To enter this level, babies must be able to hold their
head up. The goals are to help babies experience
buoyancy and movement through songs and play
in the water and to teach the parent/caregiver agespecific water safety.
JUNIOR CIT/ISRAEL TRIP
DucK 12 - 24 months
We are very excited about our Israel program for this age group, where the kids
spend the first session at YCC, and then spend 3 weeks on an amazing trip to
Israel. They then end their summer with the last 4 days together at YCC. (There
is also a 3½ week session at YCC for campers not going to Israel).
Senior CIT Program
For 16 year olds completing grade 10. The training program includes teambuilding activities, cultural trips, an intensive one week canoeing or hiking
trip, bunk placements, thorough counsellor-in-training responsibility, and the
planning and performance of a CIT play which is a highlight of the camping
season.
Age is the only condition for entering this level.
Swimmers learn how to use floating objects for
support and explore different water movements
through games, songs and active water play. The
parent/caregiver also learns age-specific water safety.
Sea Turtle 24 - 36 months
Age is the only condition for entering this level.
Swimmers learn, through fun games and songs, how
to combine skills, how to kick with a buoyant object
and how to perform basic floats, glides and kicks.
Sea otter 3 - 5 years
#YCCTikvah
Transitional level that transfers the preschooler to
the care of the Instructor. All skills are assisted by the
Instructor. Swimmers enter this level when they are
3 years of age. Using games and activities, swimmers
learn to open their eyes under water, further develop
basic floats and glides, and swim 1 metre. They also
learn age-appropriate water safety skills.
