Summer Camps for Children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

The following list identifies camps, family learning vacations, and remedial clinics for deaf and hard of hearing children. Some programs are designed for the entire family. Most camp programs require a small application fee to accompany the completed application. Contact the camp sponsor directly for more information about their program. Some camps are directed toward children who use sign language, others who use spoken language and a few for children who use cued speech. There are some listings of camp experiences for children with typical hearing who have a track record for adapting/accommodating for the needs of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. For the Volta Voices Apr-Jun 2017 issue on How to Navigate Summer Camp with Hearing Loss read here for the magazine. For information for parents describing what they can do when sending their child away to camp (a non – DHH specialty camp) go to http://www.listeningandspokenlanguage.org/SummerCamp/
