C.I.T. Program Application

Applying for the DASAC C.I.T. Program

Each summer, a number of older campers are chosen to assist the staff as part-time interns to learn the “art of counseling.” C.I.T.’s are campers who enjoy part of their day as a regular camper and part of their day as a teaching assistant. Please see the enclosed form for application to the C.I.T. program. Admittance to the C.I.T. program is selective.

  • C.I.T.s play a vital role in carrying out the spirit and traditions of DASAC.
  • C.I.T.s are campers. They are campers who spend a portion of their day in the role of regular camper and a portion of their day assisting counselors and learning the art of DASAC Counselling.
  • C.I.T.s must be 16 years of age or turn 16 before the start of the camp season. Occasionally, we will accept 15 or 17 year-old applicants under extenuating circumstances with the Director’s approval. Campers older than 16 are not eligible to apply unless they are 16 at the beginning of the camp season.
  • Priority is given to C.I.T. applicants who have been DASAC campers in the past, but acceptance in the program is not exclusive.
  • If an applicant is not accepted into the C.I.T. program, the applicant may still attend DASAC as a regular camper, and is strongly encouraged to do so.
  • C.I.T.s are required to attend DASAC for both sessions.
  • C.I.T.s earn a reduction from the camper tuition fee for each session, bringing their tuition to $840 per session, for a total of $1,680 for the summer.
  • C.I.T. applicants are required to pay the $250 registration fee, to be subtracted from amount of tuition due.
  • C.I.T. applicants who are not accepted will be part of the lottery registration pool. If an applicant is not accepted into C.I.T. program and does not wish to enroll as a regular camper, then the $250 registration fee will be refunded.
  • C.I.T. slots are selective and limited. The application process is essential.
  • Previous enrollment in C.I.T. program does not mean automatic graduation into Counselor positions. Counselor positions are very limited.

The deadline for C.I.T. applications is Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at 12 noon–the same date as registration closing.
