Since 1974, our campers at the Sign Language Summer Program (SLSP) day camp have enjoyed 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. We have just added a brand new initiative at SLSP for hearing children with Deaf and Hard of Hearing parents. Our Kids of Deaf Adults (KODA) Camp has been running for three years now providing a unique extension to our existing camp run by hearing adults who have Deaf and Hard of Hearing parents themselves. KODA Camp runs the first two weeks of our camp season and is integrated in our regular SLSP camp, so they can interact with Deaf and Hard of Hearing campers during general activity time.
SLSP 2019 runs weekly from July 2nd to August 16th and the 2019 KODA Camp runs weekly from July 2nd to July 12th. Please download our registration form below:
