CAMP COUNSELOR PROGRAM

Host a Student this Summer

Each summer the YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City welcomes students from Brazil to Oklahoma to learn about American culture and leadership at the Y as International Camp Counselors. They will be in Oklahoma June through August.

We are looking for families willing to host a student during their stay. If you have room in your home, and are interested in volunteering, please let us know. At the Y we’re focused on building strong communities - both at home and globally.

 

 


 

 

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.‚Äč
