The answer is simple. At TIC, kids get to:
TIC is not school — it's CAMP!
Learning to program a computer, rather than just passively responding to it, is an intellectual challenge which can be experienced on many levels, from the very simple to the extremely sophisticated. The intense interaction that occurs between kids and computers has positive benefits: it can improve math and reasoning skills, reading ability, and ignite a positive attitude toward learning. TIC Summer Camp’s philosophy is that intellectual attention, independence, affectionate appreciation, creative learning, and fun all go together.
We are not only about technology, but about content: campers learn geometry intuitively while programming with LOGO turtles; they learn fundamentals of sports through games and gain physical confidence; they act out camper-created skits and plays on bare sets; kids film from original scripts and learn to edit their movies. Our counselors—who are wonderful role models—believe that real caring means not only hugging kids, but respecting them as creators, athletes, actors, and learners.
At TIC Summer Camp, the individual needs of the child come first. In technology, a ratio of one counselor to every four campers allows real individualized instruction, giving each child all the time and attention he or she needs. In the sports program, a rich array of choices allows every child to grow athletically, doing what he or she likes to do best – or trying something new. TIC is an opportunity for children to learn now and for the future – and have fun in a supportive and joyous camp atmosphere.
