Host a Student this Summer
Each summer, the YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City welcomes students from Brazil to the city to learn about American culture and leadership as International Camp Counselors at the Y. Students arrive in June and stay through the month of August, and we are looking for families willing to host a student during his or her stay. If you have room in your home, please consider hosting a student.
YMCA OF BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil
The YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City has hosted 10-14 International Camp Counselors each summer since 1994. These outstanding young men and women, who are usually students, commit to a year-long training program conducted by the Y in Brazil, then come and spend their summer working as counselors in our day and resident camping programs. This program has added a unique international experience for campers. We have also hosted several Youth Exchange Groups, who spend three weeks during the summer visiting our Ys, enjoying YMCA Camp Classen and visiting several Oklahoma attractions. In addition, we have hosted interns through the Multi-International Leadership Program, who spend their time learning various aspects of our Y that would develop their leadership skills and benefit their Y at home.
