It's Great To Be A C.I.T.!


The CAA Counselor-In-Training program is a leadership development opportunity for rising 10th and rising 11th graders led by Camp All-American leadership and staff.

Students will be challenged to grow as leaders while developing the skills, knowledge, and Christ-like character for which CAA counselors are so well known.

This program is the perfect last step toward the CAA counselor position and a respectable professional future!

The three-week session involves a unique development experience, engaging service hours, and pertinent spiritual and professional training for their transitional stage of life. The session directly prepares the way for these students to walk into the counselor role at CAA as soon as they complete 11th grade. Successful completion of the three-week program as a rising 11th grader guarantees a counselor spot for the following summer as well as a higher starting pay than other starting counselors.

Note: Rising 10th graders will be required to attend an interview session and rising 11th graders will be required to formally interview with the CIT Director or a member of our fulltime team. Rising 11th graders are not guaranteed a spot as it is a program that is applied for.
