Clarke's Summer Camp

Clarke's Summer Camp Logo
It is with a heavy heart that we must cancel Clarke’s 2020 Summer Camp, which was scheduled to take place July 5 – 17, 2020.

The health and safety of our campers and staff is our top priority and we feel it is too risky to hold an event, particularly with a residential component, at this uncertain time. Projections suggest social distancing may be the norm for longer than initially expected, and we are unwilling to delay an inevitable cancellation which would only increase the level of inconvenience to our families, staff, vendors and venues.

Refunds are available. Ann Kot will be processing reimbursements and we encourage you to email Ann with any questions at akot@clarkeschools.org.

We wish you and your family good health in the months ahead.

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!

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.
