The Tourette Syndrome Camping Organization is seeking volunteers for our one-week summer at YMCA Camp Duncan

The counselor is to facilitate the group process, while ensuring camper safety and creating a positive camper experience. Counselors need to be willing and able to participate with their campers in the majority of camp activities. Camp counselors need to demonstrate sensitivity to the needs of campers, interact appropriately with campers in a variety of situations and use positive behavior management techniques. Counselors are expected to model and demonstrate mature, appropriate, adult behavior. Enthusiasm, a sense of humor, patience and self-control are the model behaviors for our camp counselors. Counselors must have the ability to communicate/coordinate tasks and responsibilities with co-counselors or seek assistance from Camp Director.

About Tourette Syndrome Camp Organization

Location:

Held at Camp Duncan, Ingleside, IL 60041, US

Mission Statement

The Tourette Syndrome Camp Organization (TSCO) is dedicated to promoting camping opportunities for children with Tourette Syndrome (TS) and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and its associated disorders Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD).

Description

The Tourette Syndrome Camp USA, founded in 1994, is a residential camping program designed for girls and boys ages 8 - 16+ whose primary diagnosis is TS, and to a lesser degree, OCD and ADD/ADHD. The goal of the camp is to allow children with TS an opportunity to meet other children, share similar experiences and coping mechanisms in a fun, safe and positive environment.

The TS camp is run concurrently with a traditional camp. However, we do have our own group time with the TS campers so they have an opportunity to share their experiences with each other.

For our campers who are 16, we have a Counselor in Training Program (CIT). These campers will be given leadership opportunities that will help with a transition to possible future positions on our staff.
