The Only ``of, by, for`` the Deaf Summer Camp in California
Camp Grizzly for Deaf, Hard of Hearing & KODA Youth.
Not all summer camp programs are alike. Recognizing the underserved needs of our Deaf and hard of hearing youth, NorCal Services for Deaf and Hard of Hearing established a weeklong summer leadership youth program, Camp Grizzly in 1999. The only way to serve our young people is by providing adult mentors who share the same experiences of life as a Deaf, hard of hearing or Koda youth.
Communication is accessed 24/7 with all program staff and counselors whereas Sign Language and Deaf Culture is revered and celebrated. Camp Grizzly is staffed by community volunteers with various background skills and experiences in leadership, education, recreation, advocacy and social services.
I had lots of fun and didn't want to leave. I love to catch up with old friends and make new ones!
It was the best summer camp ever! I had great time here and have met a lot of new friends! I’ll be back!
