A week long camp giving kids with Tourette Syndrome a life changing experience
Tourette Syndrome Camp USA is a 1 week long camp that runs concurrently with YMCA Camp Duncan. It allows children to experience an environment where their TICs are accepted, and allows them to meet other kids with Tourettes
The Tourette Syndrome Camp USA, founded in 1994, is a residential camping program designed for girls and boys ages 8 - 16+ whose primary diagnosis is Tourette Syndrome and OCD, and to a lesser degree ADD/ADHD. The goal of the camp is to allow children with Tourette Syndrome an opportunity to meet other children, share similar experiences and coping mechanisms in a fun, safe and positive environment. We are a 501(c)3 non profit organization.
We are located just outside Chicago, Illinois in Fox Lake.
