Changing lives...

Meet Emily! She is a Behavior Specialist in Nashville, TN. If you had asked her that’s what she would have been doing with her life 5 years ago, she never would have imagined that. She probably would have laughed. But in the summer of 2013, the 140+ kids that just wanted the world to know that they are just like you and me changed her life. People. They just happen to have tics. She believes that Camp Twitch and Shout helps these amazing campers realize that they aren’t so different after all, and provides an environment where they can build relationships that last a lifetime. This will be her 5th year at Camp, and she has had the privilege to work with these amazing kids in a variety of ways. From Counselor, to Unit Leader, to this year’s role of Communication Director, these kids continue to inspire her daily. When she signed up for camp, she thought she would be helping to change their lives. But in reality, they changed hers too. Thank you Emily for being such an important part of our Camp Family!

Leadership Retreat 2017

A wonderful weekend retreat of sharing, brainstorming, planning...and FUN! We had an incredibly productive and positive Leadership Retreat with our Core Staff and Camp Leaders for this summer. Lots of great stuff in the works for our summer week theme of "Under The Sea"...expect some fun with this...and lots of spirit of course!
