Our Programs

We provide families and schools with recreational activities that incorporate personal growth and social skills. This program is one of our most versatile programs where our services are designed to support students through recreation, sports and collaboration with various agencies, school boards and the community. Some of our services include after-school programs, sporting events, clinics, workshops and leadership seminars.

Since 1974, our campers at the Sign Language Summer Program day camp have enjoyed a summer rich in personal and linguistic growth in an ASL friendly environment. With our team of 20 Deaf and hearing staff who are fluent in ASL, Deaf and hard of hearing campers from different educational and cultural backgrounds have the opportunity to learn the language and meet role models in an environment free from communication restrictions. ASL plays an important role in building a child`s self-esteem and in their social and educational development. Deaf and hard of hearing campers who may otherwise have no Deaf or hard of hearing role models can acquire confidence while they interact with other campers and staff on a daily basis! Please contact us today to get more information on our programs.

Family Communication Program has been supporting family communication between non-deaf family members and their Deaf child/youth for decades. As a part of this program, a Deaf teacher will provide home visits wherein they will teach American Sign Language to the family and will provide information about the Deaf Community and Deaf culture. This program has a significant impact on families and enhances the quality of life among those whom we serve.
