The camp has been designed for deaf and hard of hearing children, and current ASD students and children interested in becoming students of ASD are welcome to submit applications for admission. While tuition for the camp is free, those interested in attending will need to pay $10 for a camp T-shirt and be prepared to have $40 in spending money for all the recreational activities planned for the event.
Admission reservations are on a first-come, first-serve basis. A form is available to be filled out and returned to the school before the April 30 deadline to ensure a child’s attendance at the camp.
Vision, hearing and intellectual and social maturity assessments are also available for potential students.
Recreation time at the camp will be spent enjoying swimming, skating, outdoor games, horseback riding, field trips, arts and crafts and other fun activities.
To attend the camp, children must submit a current audiogram with the completed form. Once ASD receives the completed form and payment for the T-shirt, campers will receive a packet in the mail that includes two forms to be completed by the camper’s physician during a routine physical. Campers will also be asked to provide copies of their insurance card and immunization record also known as a blue slip.
The registration form will ask for such information as contact phone numbers and T-shirt size to help children prepare for the camp. To locate a form to fill out, visit www.aidb.org.
If campers have any questions about the camp or how to get registered, they may call 256-761-3215 or 256-761-3246 or send an e-mail to Lavina Estes at email@example.com.
