    We are very excited to introduce our Programming Directors for 2018! Our Programming Directors don’t just oversee our Programming program, they also oversee our Robotics rooms and Circuitry circuses (circi?)(nah.) All our Programming Directors are computer science experts! When something is not working properly, they are able to come up with solutions beyond ctrl+alt+del, which […]
  • TIC attends National Camp Conference! 02/26/2018
    When you think “Summer camp” you probably don’t think of words like “conference”, “professional development”, or “expert in their field”. That is probably because summer camp is fun and all those other words would sound super weird if you inserted them into a camp cheer. (“1, 2 Conference for you! 3,4 career growth some more!!”) The […]
  • 2018’s Leadership & Training Directors!! 02/06/2018
    TIC’s Leadership & Training Director (or LTD) is an elusive being that roams the campus doing basically everything you didn’t know needed to happen to make each and every day of camp epic.

Special Needs

Because of our 4:1 teaching ratio and the supportive nature of our staff, TIC has had success with children who have mild learning disabilities (dyslexia, ADD, ADHD). We have also served children with physical disabilities (e.g. deafness or spina bifida). However, TIC counselors are  not specifically trained in special education. Therefore, parents of children with behavioral or other conditions that require very close supervision must, before submitting an application, discuss with us whether TIC is appropriate for their child. For some campers, who need a one-on-one experience, we may ask that an aid for your child be present, to ensure everyone can have a positive experience in our camp environment.

While we do our best to accommodate every child, the best way to help us ensure we are providing our services most effectively is to communicate early and often with our year-round staff and Directors! The first days of camp are essential for creating a beneficial relationship between your camper and their counselor, so the more we know about their needs, the better we can make the camp experience!

**When registering your child with special needs, please call our main office to speak with Emily Riedel at (703)-876-2868 so we can accurately meet their needs**
