FINDING A SENSE OF BELONGING

Research has shown that our program significantly improves campers’ feelings of social acceptance and quality of life. Six months after camp, our campers still feel more socially accepted than they did prior to attending.

WHY OUR CAMP?

Today nearly all families that have children with hearing loss are choosing amplification and a listening and spoken language approach. That means that rather than learning sign language and attending special schools, these children are part of the hearing world. Most of these kids learn to speak as well as their typical peers. There is only one problem; these kiddos may feel alone in a world where they are neither hearing nor deaf. Our camp will always be the place where these children and teenagers can feel completely relaxed among their peers.

Our campers love participating in all the typical outdoor camp activities so much that they often do not notice the self-advocacy and leadership skills that have been embedded into each exercise. Additionally, deaf and hard of hearing mentors are integrated into our camp so that everyone has a role model for success.

JOIN THE FUN

Our camp is located at Happy Hollow Children’s Camp, a 900-acre Brown County camp near Nashville, IN. Campers will get to participate in the following activities:

  • Archery
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Canoeing
  • Challenge Course / Low Ropes
  • Fishing
  • High Ropes
  • Horseback Riding
  • Kayaking
  • Sports / Athletics
  • Swimming
