Leaders In Training (LIT)

The Leader In Training (LIT) program is designed for young adults to gain leadership skills, challenge themselves, participate in fun and engaging Camp activities, and to feel confident to transition to life outside of High School. The LIT program is available to Tourette Syndrome diagnosed young adults 17 years of age. Any camper who is 17 years of age is automatically enrolled in the program. 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.

Transportation to & from Camp

If your magical powers do not include spelling flying carpet or entrancing a broom...then driving or flying by plane to camp are your best options!


Last Summer our Campers came from 30 different states!


Flying to and or from Camp Twitch & Shout: We provide a Chartered Bus for our children flying in and out of Atlanta Hartsfield Airport (ATL). One of our Volunteers will meet your child at their gate on arrival and will stay with your child at their gate until they board their plane to fly home. We work closely with Delta Airlines and the TSA in Atlanta. Delta has been an amazing help so if there is an option to fly with them (not required) we encourage you to do so!

*Note: We do not have room on our Charter Bus for parents or other family members.


Rental Cars are available at ATL Airport, and there is a shuttle service to Athens that leaves almost every hour called "Groome Transportation". You can book reservations online at www.groometransportation.com.
