What summer camp options are there for children who are deaf/hard of hearing?
RMTC-D/HH has curated a list of camps and summer programs from around the state and country specifically for students who are DHH. These are academic enrichment or social skill building camps which provide opportunities for students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) to interact with peers who have different hearing levels and meet role models who lead the programs. Some of these summer programs may be virtual, local, or require going away to their specific location. There are some camps or programs which are free to students and some which may offer financial assistance or scholarships to help offset the cost of the program. If there is no financial assistance available, contact your local service organizations (e.g., Sertoma, Lion’s Club, Rotary, etc.) and see if they may be able to help with camp costs. There are registration deadlines for many camps and sometimes the cost may be discounted for early registers.
RMTC-D/HH does not recommend one summer camp or program over another; therefore, they are listed alphabetically. This list is by no means exhaustive. If you know of any other summer camps or programs Florida students who are deaf or hard of hearing may be eligible to apply for please contact us.
