Counselor In Training Program ( C.I.T )


STRUT IN STYLE! Join the C.I.T team today!


The CIT program is a long-standing leadership program that runs at the same time as Camp Vegas, Family Camp, and Camp Buck. CITs are a small group of teens selected from a large pool of applicants. They are selected based on a rigorous process that includes an interview, volunteer hours, and letters of recommendation as well as for returning campers looking back on behavior patterns at camp over the prior couple of years. If your teen will be age 15 or older by the time camp starts, they can apply for a CIT position.


All aspiring C.I.Ts must:

  • Be 15 years old & in High School
  • Register for camp on CampViews
  • Submit full CIT application form before the registration deadline
  • Attend “C.I.T Bootcamp ” during Family Camp 
  • Volunteer at NDA-CDA Events: See More Info Below.


VOLUNTEERING:  C.I.Ts must volunteer for at least two NDA events during the year to qualify for a CIT position with Jail & Bail being Mandatory.  Volunteering offers teens the opportunity to showcase their initiative, organizing skills, maturity, and teamwork.  There are many opportunities for volunteering, including helping at parent support groups and large-scale fundraisers.   Please visit the following Volunteer Signup page for your area listed below.
