What's Included

Want to Volunteer? Camp Twitch and Shout is looking for people who have a passion to be around children and make them all feel like shining stars. Volunteers need positive energy, patience, and the ability to work well with children. Camp volunteers must also be physically fit and capable of doing all activities along with the campers. Volunteers are not required to have a Tourette Syndrome diagnosis. Volunteers are full-time counselors who will be with the campers at all times, including evenings when they sleep in the same cabin as the campers. Volunteer Requirements Camp Twitch and Shout accepts volunteers, ages 19 and older, from anywhere in the US. Volunteers are responsible for their own transportation and expenses to get to and from the campsite or the Atlanta Airport. All food and lodging expenses will be covered during the week. Volunteers must have completed at least one year of school after high school (college or vocational school). Prospective volunteers must pass a thorough background check, a reference check, and a phone interview before being considered as a candidate. All volunteers are required to be at Camp Twitch and Shout 24 hours a day from the required Saturday Training day (the day before the campers arrive) until after the last camper leaves on Friday, the last day of camp.
