Three weeks that last forever and a split second at the same time. CTY is, and always will be, one of the most amazing experiences you can have at a summer camp. It leaves you with many great memories, and usually, friends that live hundreds of miles away.
I went to CTY, and I danced to American Pie.
I went to CTY, and discovered an open and accepting community.
I went to CTY, and have been forever spoiled by the best teachers and students I've ever worked with.
I went to CTY, and found out who I am.
I went to CTY, and I never left.

ultra-fun summer program for so-called "nerds" who aren't really nerd, but really asians at heart. Symbolizes teenage social bonding. Run and managed by Johns Hopkins University. An unforgettable experience for literally anyone who attends.
I spent the best three weeks of my life at CTY this summer.

Nerd-camp to those who have not participated. A summer program where a class occupies most of your time on paper, and relationships occupy most of your time in reality. Consists of several sites, of which LANCASTER and Carslile are the best, and St.Mary's and John Hopkins are the worst (ironic in that it is technically the John Hopkins Talent Search). An unforgatable, and occasionally life-changing experience for those who participated. At any rate, you never lose the friends or the memories.
CTY has a nice butt, CTY we love you. Take off your clothes, take off your clothes, CTY we love you.

CTY: The most amazing summer camp in the world- often referred to as Nerd-camp for anyone that hasn't been. You have the option to choose a site (Carlisle is the best!), and a class with a subject that interests you. You are ALWAYS having fun, I don't care what anyone else tells you! You make many many friends that get to know you and still choose love you anyways, have many new experiences, and you learn to feel sorry for all the losers that don't attend. :D This is an amazing camp that I've learned to love after 5 years of attending, and I will NEVER forget all the amazing memories- I love CTY and I love the passion fruit! ;)
Guy: "Where can you find the coolest nerds out there?"
Girl: "I don't know, where?"
Guy: "CTY!"
Girl": "Now I feel so stupid, that's so obvious!"

1. As the New Yorker put it: "Nerd Camp."
2. A summer program in which students take in depth courses every week day for three weeks. In the middle are dances, activities, and much more.
3. A culture to itself consisting of Monty Python fans, Rocky Horror fans, Hitchiker's Guide fans, etc...
1. Damn that magazine!
2. We aren't that nerdy!
3. I only go there for the friends!
