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.

CTAS 2021 Save-the-Date Announcement! 

Hello Camp Twitch and Shout Family!

You have been waiting patiently and we are super excited to announce that registration for CTAS 2021 is expected to go live on April 10, 2021! A year after making the difficult decision to cancel CTAS 2020, this announcement certainly cannot come at a better time. Camp will still be a bit different than our typical summer experience, but we are still anticipating a week of connection, encouragement, and challenges becoming triumphs. 

As we have announced, at this time, summer camp is limited to 50 campers. Currently, we will only be accepting campers ages 10-17. Campers younger than 10 may be considered closer to camp depending on final registration numbers, and additional campers from the waitlist may be added as well per recommendations from Camp Twin Lakes (CTL) and TICS. These guidelines are in an effort to support each campers’ safety and well-being, in accordance with CTL policy and TICS oversight. Per usual, registration will be via Active, and the link will be emailed, shared on our website, and posted to Facebook prior to the application going live. 

Those who are eligible to be Leaders-in-Training (age 17 or rising Seniors in high school) will complete a unique LIT application and will receive priority to attend camp this summer.

With all the changes to camp this year, we will be providing more detailed information via the FAQ page located HERE (and at www.camptwitchandshout.org/camp-2021-faqs) to help answer any of your questions. For now, please note the following policy updates* for CTAS 2021: 

  • COHORT CAMP: Cabins will operate as separate cohorts. Campers and volunteers will be required to stay with their cohorts at all times, and maintain at least a 10 ft distance from any other cohort at all times while at camp.

  • MASKS: Masks will be required for all camp participants. Face shields may only be used in addition to masks, unless otherwise permitted by CTAS and CTL.

  • TRANSPORTATION TO CAMP: Due to COVID-19 precautions, CTAS will be unable to provide a charter bus or other transportation to or from the airport. Airline travel is still permitted. 

  • PRE-CAMP ARRIVAL: Each camp participant will complete a Pre-Camp Screening for the 14 days prior to arrival at camp, and provide a negative COVID-19 test within 5 days of arrival at camp. It is also requested that each camp participant and members of their direct household members quarantine for 14 days prior to the start of the camp session. 

*These requirements are being provided in accordance with Camp Twin Lakes policy and must be followed in order to attend camp for the entirety of the camp week. Prior to registration, and leading up to camp, please consider if your camper is able to meet these requirements. Further policy may be provided as needed per Camp Twin Lakes recommendations and TICS oversight. If you have any questions regarding what these policies may look like at camp, or have questions specifically related to your campers needs, please contact Mary Grace Davenport at marygrace@camptwitchandshout.org.

Despite all the changes in the world and in camp life, we are THRILLED be back at camp with you this summer! Please continue to keep an eye out as we send out more registration information and opportunities for Q&As.

With lots of care,

Your CTAS Team
