Family retreat weekend at Camp Bernie a haven for those who “get it”

We were “day campers” and only attended on Saturday.  We did not bring our youngest, Max, as we didn’t know what to expect and wanted to be completely available to our oldest child.

Maddie, who is 7 and was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome 2 years ago, proudly reported back to her brother after our day trip, “Max, you have to come to my tic camp with me next year!  They have archery there.”  Throughout the day, Maddie asked my husband and I, with much enthusiasm and almost disbelief “Wait, so everyone here tics?”

I recommend Camp Bernie to all families dealing with TS.  It was such a relief to connect with other people who just “get it.”
