Camp Connect TS offers children and teens with Tourette syndrome five days and four nights of summer fun and social connections. Children experience all the fun and adventure of a sleep-away camp with medical staff close at hand.

Throughout the week campers participate in a myriad of activities. The kids learn team-building skills through activities including sports, skits, and Camp Olympics. Group counseling sessions allow the children to discuss their feelings and learn how others cope with their condition. For one week, the children do not have to worry about how they are seen or what others think; they simply have fun.

The Department of Neurology of Children’s National Health System provides the medical management of Camp Connect.  Dr. Tammy Tsuchida, Child Neurophysiologist, and her team of nurses, social workers, physical therapists and psychologists provide medical coverage throughout the week.    Counselors are trained in dealing with the issues associated with Tourette syndromes. Several counselors and volunteers live with the condition and share their experiences with the campers.
