Targeted Population

The counselor in training (CIT) program is designed for former Camp Attaway campers, ages 14 and up, who have exhibited strong leadership skills and relatively high levels of social maturity.

Description of Program

  • The purpose of the program is to provide an opportunity for these adolescents to continue to improve their leadership, social and team-building skills; practice professional courtesy and collaboration; effectively set long and short-term goals; and improve their self-esteem and confidence.
  • Some of the components include; team building amongst themselves; serving camp by helping with the set-up and break down of activities; and supporting small groups and individual campers.
“Being a CIT was a huge boost to my child’s self-esteem. Being able to be a role model, contributing, and helping others was a great experience. It made us as parents appreciate and recognize all the growth she’s had over her many years as an Attaway camper. She too felt capable and proud in ways she’s never experienced before.”
