Camp Twitch & Shout 2019
Sunday, July 7th to Friday, July 12th

You are going to be a part of an amazing week at Camp Twitch & Shout. It’s a place where your Tourette Syndrome doesn’t need to be explained to anyone. It’s an opportunity to challenge yourself and, of course, have fun! Camp Twitch & Shout is a one week overnight camp for children 8 to 17 years of age who have been diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome.

Please visit the website of our partner and host, Camp Twin Lakes, for information on facilities and activities at Camp Twitch & Shout.

Tuition & Payment Options

To provide our week-long, overnight, inclusive, special needs camp, it costs Camp Twitch & Shout over $900.00 per camper. However we have a sliding scale of tuition options. The tuition options range from $500.00 up to the full tuition of $900.00. 

  • Applications will be live on February 1st at 9:00 AM
  • Camper arrival is on Sunday, July 7th, between 2:00 and 4:00 PM
  • Camper departure is on Friday, July 12th, around 11:00 AM
  • 17 year old applicants will automatically be enrolled in the “Leaders In Training” or “LIT” program for the week (see below)

Tuition covers all costs during the week of camp.  A $50.00 deposit is required for ALL applicants to secure a spot at camp, and payment plans are available for all options when you check-out of registration.

There are several tuition options available at registration:

    • Options #1 and #2 will remain open until Camp starts or all Camper slots are filled.
      • Option #1:  Full Tuition – $900
        • This is the actual cost of Camp per Camper.  Payment plans are available at check-out of registration.
      • Option #2:  Subsidized Tuition
        • This option is for families who cannot comfortably afford the full tuition cost.  Payment plans are available at check-out of registration.
          • Options at registration are $500, $600, $700 and $800.  You do NOT need to complete a financial need application for these options – all we ask is that you choose your most affordable tuition tier so that we can help as many families as possible with financial assistance.
          • We depend entirely on fundraising to help provide these tuition options and scholarships for our families.  For example:  if you choose the $500 option Camp Twitch & Shout fundraises to pay the $400 balance.  If you choose the $700 option Camp Twitch & Shout fundraises to pay the $200 balance.
        • Option #3:  Scholarship applications are available for those who cannot afford the above tuition options.
          • A $50 application fee is required at Registration to apply.
          • Scholarships are granted based on financial need and on the amount of funds that we have available.
          • A separate application is required at Registration for this option. Partial and full scholarships are available.
          • The DEADLINE to apply for Scholarship Assistance is April 1st, 2019.

          Leader in Training Program

          The Leader In Training (LIT) program is designed for young adults to gain leadership skills, challenge themselves, and eventually feel confident to return to Camp Twitch & Shout as counselors. The LIT program is available to Tourette Syndrome diagnosed young adults 17 years of age. If you want to learn more about yourself, leadership, and working together with a group of teens who truly want to leave a camp legacy – join us as an LIT.
