ADVENTURE CAMP HIGHLIGHTS         

Highlight #1

Every week we’ll highlight one of the activities at our annual Adventure Camp for deaf or hard of hearing children and their families in September.

First, we’ll start by telling you a little bit about the location of the camp. We rent the Ness Lake Bible Camp facility during its off-season. The camp is 30 minutes north-west of Prince George, off Chief Lake Road and is located in a beautiful forested area with 35 cabins right on the shore of Ness Lake, with trails and lots of opportunities to explore during free time. A brand new gym will be ready for us!

Last year the weather was fantastic and we’re crossing our fingers for more of the same this year!

Highlight #2

We have some really great activities planned for our camp this year!

“Learn to Dance” will be great fun for younger children. We have an instructor from Dance Your Hart Out coming out to teach us some Jazz and Hip Hop.

“Learn Mime” for the older kids will teach us how to do some simple and entertaining routines to impress your friends!

Highlight #3

While the kids are having a great time with all the fun activities we have planned, we have two special guest speakers for the adults.

Leslee Scott from the Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Kelowna will teach parents how they and their child can educate classmates and teachers about their hearing loss and communication needs.

A guest speaker from School District 57 will speak about electronic communication devices and how he communicates with his students.
