2017 Camp Dates: July 2nd through July 7th
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.
