Thanks for your interest in American Dance Training Camps and our dance camp CIT program ("CIT" stands for "Counselor-In-Training"). We're delighted that you're considering ADTC and participating in this application process!
About the Dance Camp CIT Program:
Our "CIT" Program offers select high school dancers a unique opportunity to build their leadership skills and assume some counselor responsibilities while still participating in ADTC dance classes and activities as campers. The Dance Camp CIT Program is a combination of workshops, supervised opportunities with younger campers, program planning and general camp activities.
In addition to leadership skills and teamwork, the development of ADTC's character values of appreciation, dedication, trust and caring ("ADTC") are emphasized along with an introduction to problem solving, communication, camper skills, camp mission/goals, basic life saving, and camp work projects. First year participant CIT's pay regular camper tuition, while second-year participant CIT's pay 1/2 price. Third + year participants get to attend ADTC for free.
Campers ages 16 - 17 are invited to apply for our dance camp CIT program at any ADTC camp they attend for a minimum of 2 weeks.
To apply, campers must register for two or more sessions of camp and then complete and submit our staff application along with two letters of reference - one preferably by an ADTC camp staff member. CIT campers will leave the program with a unique resume-builder and potential character reference for college applications. Girls who have not had prior ADTC experience are still welcome and encouraged to apply.
CITs will be expected to assume responsibilities beyond those of a camper but remain campers and are not considered staff members. CIT Program admission is awarded on a rolling basis. We will stop accepting CIT applications as of April 20, 2017.
In submitting an application, please note the following:
- Follow all directions carefully. An incomplete application will result in disqualification.
- A completed 2017 ADTC Registration, noting which ADTC program, location and weeks (at least 2 weeks are mandatory for the CIT program) the camper wishes to attend is required and must be received prior to submitting your completed staff application.
- Two letters of recommendation from people other than relatives (and preferably from at least one ADTC staff member) are required and must accompany your completed CIT staff application.
- ALL components of your application must be received by no later than April 20, 2017.
We will acknowledge receipt of your application and let you know that it is being processed. ALL applicants will be notified of the results no later than May 15, 2017. Please refrain from phone calls and emails concerning the status of your application. If you have other questions, you may email the ADTC Office at Info@DanceADTC.com.
Thanks again for your interest in our dance camps. We look forward to receiving your application!
