School’s out, the weather is beautiful, and your child probably has a lot of time on their hands. The good news is that summer camps are great for stimulating young minds, getting physical activity, meeting other kids and making friends, connecting with nature and so much more. The bad news is that for some kids with TS, and especially those with TS plus, generic summer camps can present challenges. Challenges include kids who are not very understanding or respectful of TS, counsellors who are not trained to correctly respond to aspects of TS plus, and so on. You don’t want your young one to have a bad experience. Thankfully many camps exist that specialize in kids with special needs, even those that cater to kids with TS specifically. Below are a few of them. Bear in mind that some, such as Camp Winston, have long waiting lists. Others are currently open to registration. If you know of any such camps in your area, please let us know so that we can add them to this list. You can either leave a comment here or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The TSFC would like to wish you and your young one a happy and safe summer. Have fun!
