    Pokemon Go: TIC Edition

    This week at TIC DC North, campers and counselors teamed up to go on the adventure of a lifetime: a Pokemon scavenger hunt! Teams had the challenge of finding Pokemon hidden all around the GDS campus, at which time counselors used their personal phones to “catch ’em.” At the end of the day scores were tallied and two winners were determined based on amount of Pokemon found, and point values of Pokemon. One camper had the inside track and filmed the whole thing. Take a look at this camper filmed Pokemon mini-documentary. Big thank you to Amos Steinglass for filming and creating this project.

    Water Day In the North. Summer is here!

        DC North’s first water day of the summer was a huge success. TIC’s own, Bounce House Dave, brought us an inflatable slip and slide, and a moon bounce. Kids not only had a blast  on our inflatables but played a variety of water balloon, and sponge games. Everybody got soaked and had a blast!
