Deaf Children Program

Camp Mark Seven offers many development and leadership activities for the deaf children program. The program is designed to provide a sense of caring for one other, honesty, respect as well as enhancing each camper's self confidence, self esteem, social skills, teamwork, initiative, work and play with other campers and camp staff. With this goal, campers will have fun with diverse camp activities. This year, we will have special 3-day STEM workshops with fun activities to inspire the campers. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM is important because it pervades every part of our lives. Science is everywhere in the world around us. Technology is continuously expanding into every aspect of our lives.  This is sponsored by NTID and more information will follow on specific projects! Program Activities:
  • Swimming and tubing.
  • Paddle a canoe on the chosen rivers/lakes and camp out under the stars.
  • Low ropes course.
  • Diverse outdoor games.
  • Deaflympics.
  • Arts & crafts.
  • Hike different mountains.
  • Evening Bonfires.
  • Shopping in Old Forge and Inlet.
  • Waterpark.
Campers will create skits for Parents' Night; Parents’ Night is offered at the end of the program, and family members are invited to come and watch their child’s skits. CM7 shirt included. This program is available for everyone - we serve deaf children from residential schools for the deaf, mainstreamed programs for the deaf and hard of hearing, and public schools with interpreting services or special programs for deaf individuals with cochlear implants.
