Clarke’s Summer Adventure is a two-week summer camp for children ages 9 - 14 who are deaf and hard of hearing. Activities are led by experienced teachers of the deaf and encourage leadership and independence, while enhancing listening, communication and social skills. Held in Easthampton, Massachusetts, Summer Adventure offers campers the opportunity to interact with other children with hearing loss from all over the country, make new friends and have lots of fun! This program is designed for children with hearing loss who communicate using listening and spoken language.

This camp must comply with regulations by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and be licensed by the local board of health.

“Calling all Artists, Athletes, Actors and Adventurers: What’s your story?”

Every year Summer Adventure has a theme, and this year the theme is "What's your story?" In keeping with this theme, we will explore the art of storytelling and the necessity of self-expression. Campers will tell their story in whichever way most resonates with them, and learn how to write a narrative, deliver a newscast, draw a comic strip, design a poem, film a movie, and paint a self-portrait. Campers will also have the opportunity to sign up for electives of their choice, such as cooking, crafts, or sports.

There will be multiple field trips and many opportunities for campers to enjoy the sun and outdoor activities with daily swimming and recreation. Respect and communication will be fostered every day through all activities. Teamwork and friendship will be the focus. Campers should expect to leave camp with a deeper understanding of how to express themselves, a renewed love of adventure, and most importantly, a group of lifelong friends.
