FAQS 

  • Are there age requirements to enter the event?

    Kampers age 4-14 are welcome. Students age 15-17 can register as Junior Volunteers. Junior Volunteers learn leadership skills by helping the younger kampers in activities and at meals. Kampers may be Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or Hearing!

    Do you have to be deaf or know sign language to be a kamper?

    All Kids are welcome!   Knowing sign language is not a requirement to join kamp; AND kampers may learn some sign language along the way!

    What are the requirements for Volunteers and Jr. Volunteers?

    Due to limited space this year, if you are interested in either being a volunteer or Jr. Volunteer, you will be asked to submit an application and letter of interest. Applications will be reviewed and a limited number will be selected to participate. Volunteers with sign language skills will be a priority. Adult Volunteers will need to have a backgrounds check at their expense and pay a $100 registration fee to offset the cost of meals and overnight accommodations.
