Deaf STEMS Children Program

The first ever Deaf Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and SIGN LANGUAGE (Deaf STEMS) Camp through Camp Mark 7 will be offered in the natural surroundings of the Adirondack Mountains. The Deaf STEMS curriculum will focus on Outdoor Environmental Education, where deaf campers will explore their natural environment and develop complex thinking in core STEM academic areas to prepare for possible future STEM careers to succeed in an ever-changing world.  Learning outdoors in nature with the guidance of Deaf or Instructors who use ASL, will provide ample opportunities to develop such skills. Additional program activities at CM7 also include: Swimming, tubing, canoeing, arts & crafts, hiking and evening bonfires. Campers will have a Parents’ Night at the end of the program for family members who are invited to come.   This program is available for anyone who is deaf or hard of hearing from residential schools for the deaf and public mainstreamed programs for the deaf and hard of hearing students. The Deaf STEMS camp is sponsored by the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID). DEAF CHILDREN (ages 8-14) For more information, contact the Deaf STEMS Program Director, Gabriel Arellano at stemsign@gmail.com or call (202) 750-9388.
