Summer camp fun for children and youth who are deaf or hard of hearing featuring field trips, sports, sign language and Deaf culture activities

Join the Illinois School for the Deaf (ISD) for “Camp 1839” from June 25-29.

Campers will stay in the dorms and experience life as a student at ISD.

Camp 1839 will provide a wide range of opportunities for campers to make new friends, develop lifelong connections and experience:

  • Learning through play and S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art, math) activities
  • Exploring American Sign Language (ASL) and Deaf culture
  • Making a splash at the water park
  • Playing sports
  • Putting gaming skills to the test in friendly competition with their peers and more!

Camp 1839 is for students who are deaf or hard of hearing entering fourth through eighth grade in the fall.

See the Camp 1839 flyer for more details.

There is a $75 registration fee. (The camp will waive the fee if your child becomes a full-time ISD student for the 2024-25 school year after attending camp.)

Register online for Camp 1839. May 15 is the last day to register.
