Click to report rating    10/3/08   5     5     5     5     5   My son has attended both the winter and summer sessions for three years. He has truly enjoyed his experience and looks forward to seeing old and new friends each time. My husband and I know that we are leaving him with responsible and caring staff in a safe and nurturing environment. A bonus is a staff of adults, who themselves have TS or years of professional experience with TS, acting as positive role models and supporting our efforts as parents. They have all been nothing but accommodating of my son when he needs a phone call home or some quiet time away from the excitement of camp. They also ensure that I receive letters and postcards from him while he is gone!! RID: 26865

Click to report rating    10/1/08   5     5     5     5     4   My son attended this camp from the age of 8...he is now 18 and has been a counselor for the past couple of years. It was always a great experience for him! I found the nursing staff to be incredibly supportive and efficient. I also thought the counselors were wonderful role models. I was very worried about leaving him at camp that first year but got an email from him shortly after telling me he was "having a great time." He looked very forward to camp every year. At camp, my son found others affected by the same misunderstood neurological disorder and it made him feel better about himself. I highly recommend this camp! RID: 26845

     9/9/08   1     3     3     1     3   The camp nurse was unaccomidating and judgemental. She didn't want to be bothered giving my daughter her medication, so she created a situation that eventually led to my daughter being sent home, after a day and a half of camp. RID: 26436

Click to report rating    5/22/08   5     5     5     5     5   My son attended the winter weekend version of this camp and greatly enjoyed his experience. He was able to meet Brad Cohen, author of "Front of the Class: How Tourette Syndrome Made Me the Teacher I Never Had" and meet other kids with Tourette's. More importantly he met adults with Tourette's that showed him he is capable of achieving any dream he has for himself. RID: 23316

Click to report rating    5/20/08   5     5     5     5     5   My son has attemded TS Camp since he was 9 years old and he is now 17 and a junior counselor! He has met friends from all over the world and even met up with two of them in London last year. He has learned that kids with TS come in all different shapes, sizes, colors and to look through the difference and see the sameness. His camp experience has taught him to be empathetic and increased his self esteem. This past year the camp founder Scott Loeff was recognized by CNN as being an Everyday Hero finalist on Anderson Cooper. If you have a child with TS, this really is a great experience. We were intially reluctant to send him, thinking that when he would see some of the other kids he would become depressed about himself, but actually the opposite happened. Every year we see lots of teary eyes saying goodbyes and yes, he even had 3 girls ask him to the camp dance, something that never happens to him back in the cruel world of reality. RID: 23278
