The goal of the Counselor-In-Training program is to engage, develop, and empower emerging leaders through the avenues of summer camp and year-round training and employment experiences
1. Practice each of ASC’s core values at home, at school, and in life
2. Be prepared for a role as a summer camp counselor
3. Feel a sense of belonging at ASC and help others to feel the same
4. Be equipped for success in life through high school and beyond
We put Safety first – responsibility for ourselves, our camp, and each other
We are Honest – truthfulness in all we do
We Include everyone – every person matters
We Never give up – persistence, grit, and resilience
We are Empowered – we can accomplish anything
The CIT program is free of charge.The program allows for gainful employment. As CITs move through their second and third year in the program, they will have more opportunities to lead the program and make decisions regarding the content of SHINE events, training, and more.
Involvement in the program makes you eligible to apply for the YMBL Sunshine Foundation Scholarship – the greater involvement you have in the program, the greater chance you have of receiving scholarship funds.
Successful CIT program participants will have the opportunity to work as a summer camp counselor after they graduate high school and because of their history of involvement with ASC, will set an example for summer staff that do not come from the ASC family.
