Counselor-In-Training Tryout & Training Dates

To be held on Saturday March 14, 2020

8:30 AM - 4:00 PM

Corona Del Mar High School

Will all meet in the small parking lot at 8:30AM

We are sorry, but anyone who is unable to attend will be ineligible for a CIT position. While we will try to take as many qualified candidates as possible, not all who try-out may be chosen for a staff position. If you are not chosen as a CIT, we encourage you to attend camp as an LIT (Leader in Training) to gain further training and experience.

During try-outs we will be observing you in a variety of camp role play and teamwork activities, and we’ll be looking for enthusiasm, energy and overall participation level. We encourage you to be prepared as though you would for camp. That means comfortable clothing and closed toed shoes.

CIT’s will have a mandatory training session on one weekend in Big Bear after CIT’s are chosen (see time below). If you cannot attend this  mandatory training meeting, you will be ineligible for a CIT position.

Please RSVP to the Camp Directors Ron or Heather at:, or by calling us at 714-474-9774 at least two weeks in advance that you will be coming to the the tryouts. 

A rule of thumb  "It is better to be an hour early than a minute late".  At camp we do not accept being late as we are depending on you.


We have hundreds of kids to serve and because of this, we have booked training dates nearly a year in advance.  If you are unable to come to any of these training sessions, then we are tremendously sorry, but you will be unable to be a CIT this year.  As part of ACA we are training to the standards set forth by them, and to their hour requirements.  There is no makeup time available.
