We had a great first week at the DC Site. There was running around. Some relaxation. And more running around. Everyone is getting ready for the weekend on this rainy Friday. Card games, torpedo in the gym, and some book reading.
But camp is still just getting started. Next week there will be even more running around. And the tech projects are getting closer to completion. And our filmmakers and other artists are formulating their masterpieces!
We are very excited to announce the Site Directors for 2018! Here are some of their favorite quotes and a little more information about them:
TIC-Virginia is proud to welcome back Joe Anderson! Joe is a long-time director for TIC and specializes in making people laugh and feel at home. He is excited to get back in the mix of camp and spend his summer back with his best buddies! During the off-season, Joe is an Elementary School teacher in Arlington, VA.
Returning to TIC-Maryland for a 2nd summer in a row is Daniel Morais! Dan is almost as excited about the World Cup as he is about the 2018 camp season! He can’t wait to reconnect with all the staff and campers at TIC-MD. During the off-season, Dan coaches soccer and is TIC’s Program Director and one-man HR Department.
After 2 summers at DC-West, Leslie Keller will return to the original DC Site for Summer 2018! Leslie is pumped for a summer full of surprises and the start of our new Girls Rock Our World program! During the off-season, Leslie is TIC’s Communications Director and an Ultimate Frisbee Coach.
As the weather is finally changing, so is our website! Take a moment to poke around and spot new Tech. options and other updates for summer 2018. Registration is around the corner and we are totally excited for what’s in store for us next camp season!
Check out some awesome performance highlights from session 3! This may be a technology and athletics-focused camp, but D.C. North kids and counselors have other amazing aptitudes as well—lucky they can showcase them at TIC! Not only do campers receive an A+ for talent, but also for breadth of acts! From alphabet burping, to sleeping, to ti quan do, to flying paper airplanes across the forum, TIC expertise has no limit!
In the Spirit of the 4th of July, TIC North held a pudding eating competition. Four counselors gulped down chocolate pudding like their lives depended on it!
Ryan, an international counselor from England, wanted to show off his American spirit by participating in an American-themed competition. Not pictured: his American flag themed shutter shades and fidget spinner.
Garry could not be happier for some mid-afternoon pudding. His Jigglypuff-style smile says it all as he gets ready to compete.
Alek is ready for fierce competition. You can see the determination in his eyes and hardcore attitude in his willingness to eat a paper plate.
Braden may put on a happy face, but you can see he is clearly unnerved having to take off his expertly themed hat. He is in it to win it…OH YEAH!
Take a look at our ranking order! The winners numbers 1-4 are holding up fingers to represent their places. (1) Alek, (2) Ryan, (3) Braden and (4) Garry!
Assistant Director Nate preps the pudding for competition.
