Questions About Camp?

Watch our Camp Welcome Webinar to learn more!

If you are curious about if your camper is a good fit for our camp environment, or want to be added to our email list for updates, please contact us at While completing your camper’s application, please closely review the CTAS Camper Code of Conduct, which we require all campers to abide by while at camp, to consider if your camper is prepared for a camp setting.

Camp Twitch and Shout (CTAS) is a one-week overnight camp for children ages 8-17 with a confirmed diagnosis of Tourette Syndrome (TS) or another Tic disorder. Our Leader-In-Training (LIT) program is available to 17 year olds (or rising high school seniors) with TS/tics, which joins our traditional camp programming with leadership development. CTAS is organized and managed by Tourette Information Center and Support (TICS), in partnership with Camp Twin Lakes (CTL), and is located at CTL Will-A-Way in Winder, Georgia.

The mission of CTAS is to provide a place for children with TS/tics to experience the joys of childhood and grow in their confidence and capabilities in a camp and recreation setting. It is our hope that our campers will experience understanding and acceptance of themselves and others. We want our campers to come together and create supportive friendships that last a lifetime.

At CTAS, we will focus on camper strengths while giving them positive experiences to support their success after returning home. Over the years, CTAS has hosted hundreds of campers from nearly every state in the US, and some international campers as well! We are proud to be an inclusive setting where campers can get to know themselves and learn new skills while connecting with others, regardless of their background.

Throughout the week, CTAS Campers and LITs, along with CTAS Staff and Volunteers dedicated to helping them achieve their goals during the week, engage in activities and challenges focused on helping campers to overcome obstacles and grow in their confidence and capabilities. At its core, camp is a place where our campers can just be kids having fun and making memories. A camper once said, “I wake up every morning thinking that I’m one day closer to camp.” We feel the same way and can’t wait for you to be a part of our Camp Twitch and Shout family!

Expected Costs?

Our full tuition cost is $950. We offer reduced rate and scholarship options, and also offer payment plans spread out from February to June. This tuition covers all expenses for campers when they are on-site, including meals, snacks, daily program activities, cabins, and annual t-shirts. We also offer a scholarship application for those who are interested. Please keep in mind that CTAS is unable to cover any costs for transportation to and from camp. 

Leader In Training Program

The Leader In Training (LIT) program is designed for young adults to gain leadership skills, challenge themselves, and eventually feel confident to return to Camp Twitch & Shout as counselors.

The LIT program is available to young adults 17 years of age diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome or tic disorder. 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.
