Deaf and Hard of Hearing Youth Session
   
Bear Lake provides a one week camp experience for youth who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.  The program is developed and coordinated by teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing.  It is geared to meet the unique needs of children who use listening and spoken language as their primary modes of communication. Our goal is to provide a camp rich with experiences that promote communication.  While having fun, we will build vocabulary, focus on auditory skills and use good language to communicate with others.

Program activities will include: swimming, boating, hiking, crafts, nature, archery, team building, overnight tent camping, games and drama.  Older campers have the option to  participate in leadership development activities. The leadership development program runs through two summers with elevated experience and responsibilities in the 2nd year. Participants in the leadership development program must have been a camper for the regular Deaf and Hard of Hearing Youth Camp.
 

Leadership Development

 
Leadership Development is a special session that focuses on leadership skills and responsibilities in the camp environment.  Participants gain knowledge of how to be an effective leader and team member.  The program runs over two summers.  The first summer being more of an introduction and the second summer provided more hands on opportunity to demonstrate and develop skills.  You must have been a camper at Bear Lake Camp and be 15-16 years of age.
