Why TIC?

At TIC, kids get to:

  • choose their own goals in technology and sports;
  • develop their unique personal visions;
  • go as far and as fast as they want to.

TIC is not school — it’s CAMP!

Learning to program a computer is an intellectual challenge which can be experienced on many levels. The intense interaction that occurs between kids and computers has positive benefits: it can improve math and reasoning skills, reading ability, and ignite a positive attitude toward learning. TIC Summer Camp’s philosophy is that intellectual attention, independence, affectionate appreciation, creative learning, and fun all go together.

We are not only about technology, but also about content. Campers learn geometry intuitively while programming with LOGO turtles; they learn fundamentals of sports through games and gain physical confidence; kids film from original scripts and learn to edit their movies. Our counselors believe that real caring means not only teaching kids, but respecting them as creators, athletes, actors, and learners.

At TIC Summer Camp, the individual needs of the child come first. In technology, a ratio of one counselor to every four campers allows real individualized instruction, giving each child all the time and attention he or she needs. In the sports program, a rich array of choices both traditional and new allows every child to grow athletically. TIC is an opportunity for children to learn now and for the future – and have fun in a supportive and joyous camp atmosphere!

AT TIC — KIDS LEARN BY HAVING FUN!
