January 2021 – Letter from the Board President

Last year I was touched when the board nominated me to take on the role of President. I had just finished what I had planned to be my last year as a counselor and was looking for ways to continue to give when the board asked me to join. It is big shoes to fill as Gillian Leggett and Tricia Kardon before me helped build the organization to what it had become. I have been a counselor since 2010, and have seen first hand just what this organization has meant to so many. Both the campers who come each year finding confidence and themselves, and the volunteers, many of whom like myself live with Tourettes and found a place to belong.

That is why it was so hard last year to have to cancel our summer program due to Covid-19. Thankfully our wonderful volunteers stepped up and helped us host our successful virtual camp. Never before has the 30 plus states and multiple countries that our campers and volunteers hail from felt so close. 2020 was a challenge for our organization much like many non-profits out there, but we would not be able to make it to 2021 without the continued support from our amazing volunteers, our campers, and their dedicated families.

Our board remains dedicated to continuing to provide support and awareness while keeping the organization in a financial position to continue our flagship program, Camp Twitch and Shout, but we can not do it alone. I would like to personally thank our wonderful camp directors Megan Kasper and Mary Grace Davenport who not only pulled out an amazing virtual camp program, but also are helping organize and run our weekend retreat coming up on March 5-7. I would also like to thank all of the amazing volunteers who have stepped up to help us get through 2020.

That being said, we would not be where we are without all of you. That is why I would appreciate it if you could fill out the following survey. We would like to know what it is that you are looking for from our organization and from camp as we start preparing for CTAS 2021.

Thank you for your support.

Seth Tucker, TICS, Inc. Board President
