ADA Camp Carefree CIT Program is designed to
provide a supervised period of transition between being a camper and being
a counselor. CITs attend the second half of staff training
week to start their training and work with the counselor to help prepare
camp for the arrival of the campers. CITs continue their training
through out camp with evening meetings with the CIT Director where CITs, as a group, will discuss each days
experiences. CITs are mentored by counselors in program activities
to help develop the skills to teach those activities. CITs also assist their
cabin counselors with daily cabin duties. CITs live in the cabin
with the campers, and are expected to follow the camp rules as well as the
agreement of the CIT contract. CITs must be 17 years old
to qualify for the CIT program.
The fee for attending the CIT Program is half the full
camper fee; $650 for 2015. CIT applicants make no payments
until after they are selected for the program.
