For some of us school has already started (yikes!) and for others it’s right around the corner; but before summer becomes a distant memory we just wanted to say… THANK YOU!!! We have just closed the book on yet another amazing and successful summer and we have no one to thank, but our marvelous campers and standout staff! We wish everyone well this school year and we hope to see everyone back at TIC for summer ’15! Don’t forget to check out www.dailyticker.net to revisit all of your favorite TIC memories from this past summer!
For the fourth and final session this summer, we thought we’d do something special for Water Day. We pulled some strings and were able to get a 50 foot slip and slide and a moon bounce, leading to our wildest, wackiest, wettest Water Day yet! Campers rotated through a series of stations, all featuring water-related activities, including the slip and slide, moon bounce, Drip Drip Drop, and obstacle courses.

For fourth session, TIC-VA celebrated it’s spookiest Monday FUNday yet. Impatient for October 31st to arrive, we decided to hold Halloween in August! Campers and staff arrived at camp wearing costumes that ranged from scary to funny to creative. Camp was infested with super heroes, princesses, ninjas, pirates, and more! We had terrific participation from everyone and made for quite an enjoyable day! For a gallery of photos featuring many of the costumes worn today, please visit our TIC Pics site!
One thing that sets TIC apart from other camps is the vast variety of options it offers the campers. You can choose from eight different options in Technology, from animation to web development. Campers also get to play a ton of fun, creative games in Athletics, including everything from Hunger Games and Quidditch to Soccer and Basketball. As if that weren’t enough, TIC also offers Drama and Tennis for both Juniors and Seniors!
Campers that are in Drama or Tennis, will spend one of the three Athletic periods either on the stage or at the tennis courts. In tennis, campers receive instruction on a variety of skills from our experienced Tennis Counselors. They work on forehands, backhands, serves, and more, as well as play fun tennis games. In drama, campers play a variety of acting games as well as writing and rehearsing their own play! They perform the play on the last day of the session in front of the entire camp, staff, and parents.

TIC-VA welcomed campers today to the final session of the 2014 summer! We got to meet a slew of new campers as well as some familiar faces.

TIC-VA closed out its third session of the summer today. Session 3 Open House was complete with Color Wars activities, Counselor Sport, Drama performances, and award ceremonies. We also welcomed friends and family to see campers’ projects and watch them play some of their favorite sports. Visitors were wowed by the detail and complexity of campers’ projects!
Furthermore, Blue team finally got on the board for the summer, with a tight victory over the White team. The Blue team managed to score a whopping 3,081 points in the span of a mere 2 and a half days! The White team scored a respectable 2,891 points, but it wasn’t enough to keep their winning streak alive. To all the campers returning for 4th Session, see you next week! To everyone else, thanks for hanging with us and making it a great summer! Enjoy the rest of the summer and have a great school year!

TIC-MD hosted “Jersey Day” for Wacky Wednesday, campers were able to show their support for their favorite sports teams. However, Jersey day quickly turned into one of the wackiest wacky Wednesdays ever! With constant office dance parties and campers demanding cake, it was a Wednesday like no other. Campers and counselors were also treated to a “sweet” surprise. Be sure to check out the videos below for more.
Campers arrived to a surprising scene at TIC-DC today as all of our counselors transformed into Minions! Present among our many yellow minion friends, was the famous Gru, Dr. Nefario, and even an Infected Purple Minion from Despicable Me 2. Check out our Minion Staff and this video from the day!
Monday was bittersweet as TIC-DC started off our last session of the summer. Although we are sad that our season is nearing the end, we plan on making the most out of the next two weeks with multiple events, theme days, and even a few surprises! Campers and counselors alike can look forward to the high energy, fun-filled, silly days up ahead. Check out this video of our Tuesday morning cheer!
