Good bye, Summer!

It’s about that time for us to split up for the summer. We want to thank all of our dauntless directors for all of their guidance and direction throughout each session. We would like to thank our captivating counselors for providing their time, patience and energy all summer. We want to shoutout our creative and carefree campers for making sure there’s never a dull moment at TIC. And lastly, but certainly not least, we want to thank our bighearted Boss lady Emily Riedel for making all of this possible! Join us next year for another awesome summer. Check out Our Website for information on 2018 registration and be on the lookout for emails included camper projects. In the meantime, feel free to follow us on all of our social media accounts!TICSOCIALMED

TIC-VA Gets In Olympic Spirit, Celebrates the OlympTICs!

All week, campers in Athletics have been participating in our very own OlympTICs!  Athletics groups paired up to constitute countries from around the world, then competed in all kinds of different activities.  These ranged from the usual TIC sports to trivia to Minute-to-win-it games to Track and Field events!  We even had our own opening cermonies! The final winner won’t be announced until tomorrow, but be sure to check out some of the photos below and in the TIC Pics tab at the top of the page!

TIC-VA Celebrates Halloween in August

Only celebrating Halloween once a year is not NEARLY enough.  That’s why we decided to celebrate Halloween in August as part of our third session’s “Monday FUNday”.  Campers and staff came to camp adorned in some adorable, creative, and spooky costumes.  Check out the TIC Pics for some photos of costumes seen around camp.

Session 3 Water Day…With a Twist!

Today, TIC-VA celebrated it’s third water day of the summer, complete with the standard slip n’ slide, moon bounce, and other water-themed activities.  However, we felt a little guilty letting the Athletics counselors have all the Water Day fun, so we decided to add a Counselor Switch Day to the mix!  Technology ounselors got to enjoy the thrills of water day, as well as various other sports while Athletics counselors got to check out what campers have been learning in their tech rooms.  All counselors had a blast and simultaneously developed a newfound respect for what their counterparts do all day!  Be sure to check the TIC Pics for the photos from today’s action!

Session 3 Begins at TIC-VA

Today, TIC-VA opened its doors to Session 3 campers (and then quickly closed them to keep the A/C contained within the building)! Campers hit the ground running in both Athletics and Technology as they got acquainted with their counselors and fellow campers.  Though campers stayed inside during Athletics to avoid the scorching temperatures, they were able to participate in a variety of indoor games and activities!  In technology, some campers were introduced to some of the basics of their discipline while others got started with more advanced concepts as they began planning their projects for the session.  Be sure to check out TIC Pics throughout this session by clicking on the tab on the menu bar at the top of the page!

A New Addition to the Color War Schedule….

As part of their CIT training, I asked a group of rising 10th graders to come with a fresh idea that would contribute positively to the TIC culture.  They came up with….Color War Counselor Karaoke!!!!!  TIC-VA opened Friday with a Karaoke battle between counselors from the white and blue teams (or at least those brave enough to volunteer).  The winner was judged by camper applause and received 100 color war points! In the end, Blue team’s performance of “Hey Ya” bested White team’s “Don’t Stop Believin'”.  Winner’s aside, it was a blast to watch and a great way to start the day!
