Each year, boys entering the 10th or 11th grades are eligible to apply for our Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program, which is O-AT-KA’s capstone program for campers in their last year. This seven-week program provides participants with an experiential education in effective leadership skills while focusing on the specific skills necessary to work effectively with children. It also focuses on the value of creating lifelong friends in a healthy, supportive environment.
CITs hone their skills to an advanced level while learning important safety skills, and eventually act as assistant staff members while they learn the skills necessary to lead group activities and be a cabin counselor.
The program is designed for the graduated to be ready to apply to be on staff the following summer. Skills learned are invaluable for a position at O-AT-KA and beyond.
The CIT program requires a separate application process from other campers. To inquire, please call (207) 787-3401 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
