Clarke’s Summer Adventure is a two-week, theme-based camp for children ages 9 to 17 with hearing loss who utilize hearing technology (such as hearing aids or cochlear implants) and communicate using listening and spoken language.

Activities are led by experienced teachers of the deaf and young adult role models with hearing loss. Activities 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!

Clarke's Amazing Race, Believe It, Achieve It!

Every year Summer Adventure has a theme, and this year the theme is "Clarke's Amazing Race, Believe It, Achieve It!" In keeping with this theme, we will explore building self-confidence, challenging yourself, working as a team, making friends, building leadership skills and having fun!

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.
