Camp Sign Me Up is for six to twelve-year-olds and offers three levels—Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced. You may choose the level you feel is appropriate for your child based on previous attendance in Camp Sign Me Up or Club Sign Me Up. We will evaluate campers and move them to different levels as needed. All the weeks will feature Deaf history and culture, and we will go on one to two field trips each week.
Beginner: This level will cover vocabulary, sentence structure, facial expressions, using space and motion. We will have periods when we turn our voices off.
Intermediate: This level will expand vocabulary and work on non-manual communication and beginning classifiers. We will have days with voices off.
Advanced: These campers will come with a basic conversational ASL. We will continue to build vocabulary and work on facial expressions/eyebrows in grammar, classifiers, multi-meaning words. We will do a story project and will have voices off more than on.
Campers are welcome to attend more than one week. Activities will change each week. There is a $10 discount for siblings.
