The Camp Augusta CIRCLE program combines months of pre-camp reflection and planning with an intense 3-week "on-the-ground" curriculum during July and August. This combination of introspection and action illustrates our vision of what is important to leadership, and how to achieve that. Focused reflections, logistical planning, extensive communication training, success counseling, and intimate interaction with children are just a few ways that we develop compassionate leaders. Please see the 3-week schedule from 2009 below for more specific details on what a CIRCLE participant might experience at camp.
As the name change indicates, the CIRCLE program is not seeking to be a Counselor-in-Training program. Leadership and personal development are our main focuses, and camp counseling is just one of many, many options that a CIRCLE participant may want to pursue in the future. The skills that we aim to provide will allow a CIRCLE participant to be effective in any area of life that they are passionate about. As the links below illustrate, an extensive amount of time and effort is required of all CIRCLE participants, so please think deeply about whether or not this is the right opportunity for you at the right time. Coming back as a camper is always an option, and that extra year may provide time and more experience that would truly allow you to excel during this program. If you are not sure, and the documents below do not clear up any concerns, we are always happy to chat!
