Congressional School and Camp are lucky to have Leah Boemerman and Lindsey Ticer with us on a year round basis. Leah and Lindsey have been integral to our school and camp community with not only your typical bumps and bruises, but also with helping our organization navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. They are constantly in touch with the Virginia Department of Health and up to date on the latest recommendations. They were an instrumental in Congressional Camp opening in July 2020 and Congressional School opening in September 2020. Leah and Lindsey will each be with us this upcoming summer and you can read more about them below!
Leah joined Congressional in 2019. At the beginning of her career, Leah started working in early childhood education as a preschool teacher and after-
care teacher. She was involved in going on mission trips to Alabama to help foster children, to Haiti to volunteer in an orphanage in Cap-Haitien, and she backpacked and camped through Europe where she mentored teenage girls. Leah decided to transition to nursing and graduated from the Northern Virginia Community College LPN program in 2017. Since then she has worked as a Pediatric nurse in an outpatient doctor’s office. Leah has always wanted to get back into education and is very excited to be working in school nursing.
In her free time she is going back to school to become an RN, and when she’s not doing that she is either biking, hiking or camping with her husband. Leah also greatly enjoys volunteering at her church to mentor teenage girls.
Lindsey joined the Congressional team in 2020. She graduated from Liberty University with her RN and Bachelors of Science in Nursing in 2017. She initially started working in the Emergency Room and quickly realized that she enjoyed pediatric patients and their love for life, regardless of their circumstances. She moved into pediatrics and ended up as the Clinical Coordinator of a local clinic in Falls Church. Lindsey decided to transition into school nursing due to her love for children and the long term impact that it provides. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her extended family in Vienna and traveling when possible.
During all hours of operation, a registered nurse and/or clinic aide is on campus to help safeguard children’s health.
Campers with special health concerns are encouraged to speak to the camp nurse prior to the first day of their session. The following forms may also be required depending on campers medical background:
In addition to these forms, any medication turned into camp will require a Medication Authorization Form
