Clarke's Summer Camp

Two-week session, July 7 - 19, 2019

Clarke's Summer Camp 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 adults with hearing loss, and encourage leadership and independence, while enhancing listening, communication and social skills. Held in Easthampton, Massachusetts, Clarke's Summer Camp 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! Children enjoy field trips, recreation, arts and crafts, hiking, swimming, and more!

Registration for Clarke’s Summer Camp in 2019 is coming soon!

Each year, Clarke's Summer Camp gives kids a chance to practice being the best they can be. They experience a place designed to create happy memories and encourage self-expression. All campers treasure the time they spend getting to know other kids with hearing loss and being part of a “family” environment. As one parent said, “Clarke is home to my girls. It is an experience that has changed their lives.”

We enjoy spending time with every camper. Each one of them has a great impact on us and it is always amazing to watch their transformation from nervous, anxious campers to confident, empowered kids! Camp is an independent experience that shapes a child’s character and life—a gift parents can give their children that they will benefit from and remember forever!

For some children, their families are not able to afford summer camp. Through the generosity of our friends, we are able to make this life-changing summer experience possible by providing camp scholarships. If you would like to be a part of this incredible community of givers, please consider making a gift today.

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