About the DHH Family Camp
Since 2000, The Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Family Camp has been making a difference in the lives of children and their families. Each year our camp is held over Memorial Day weekend at a YMCA facility in Julian. In 2013 we were honored to become California Hands and Voices DHH Family Camp. (Watch a video that explains more about camp.)
California Hands & Voices is dedicated to supporting families with children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing without bias regarding communication modes or methodology. We’re a parent-driven, non-profit organization providing families with the resources, networks, and information to improve communication access and educational outcomes for their children. Our outreach activities (including DHH Family camp), parent/professional collaboration, and advocacy efforts are focused on enabling children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing to reach their highest potential.
At DHH Family Camp parents are respectful and non-judgmental. Each family has the unique opportunity to learn from and be supported by families who have children of all ages and who use a wide range of communication opportunities within their family. Parents attend educational seminars that focus on the family; including sibling and family bond and a variety of complex issues related to raising DHH children.
This event has become an anchor for many families who have come to value the opportunity to renew and create lasting friendships. You can find more information about the meals, facilities, cabins and other important information about Camp Marston at http://www.camp.ymca.org/camp-marston.html
We hope that you will join us at camp this year!
