TIC’s Leadership & Training Director (or LTD) is an elusive being that roams the campus doing basically everything you didn’t know needed to happen to make each and every day of camp epic. Many people ask, “but what does the Leadership & Training director DO?!?!?!” Well, that is a difficult question because the answer is essentially: everything. Attendance? Yep. Activity Planning? Yep. Being the Site Director’s best friend and confidant? You betcha! In fact, the Leadership & Training Director is pretty much the best friend and confidant of everyone on staff. They are the dependable glue that holds camp together if camp were, in fact, held together by glue. It’s not (because of the humidity), but you get the idea.
Probably the most essential job of the Leadership & Training Director, however, is training people on leadership. This extends to our staff, but is mostly all about our older campers. The LTD oversees all 3 of our leadership programs for teens, from the Leadership Training Program for rising 9th graders, to the more intense Counselor-in-Training Program for rising 10th graders, on to supervising our 11th & 12th grade Staff Assistants who are well on their way to becoming full fledged counselors. The Leadership Training Director teaches a specialized curriculum of these skills at no extra charge to our awesome participants (and in exchange gets to learn what is cool and hip with teenagers these days) (pretty sweet deal if you ask me) (which you can- on “the snapchats”) (see???)

Now, let’s meet the LTDs!
Roshni has been at TIC literally forever and will be joining TIC-DC for her second year as a LTD! She studied at George Washington University and is a Spongebob Squarepants enthusiast.
Christian is himself a product of TIC’s Leadership Training Programs and has now fortuitously risen to lead them for the first time. He studies at RIT and is an absolute beast at Rocket League.
Colin has perfected the art of being the LTD for many years at our TIC-Virginia location. He studied at University of Pittsburgh and is now a 6th grade science teacher in Arlington, VA, although he does dabble in chemistry…PERIODICALLY.
