Themed camp for children who are deaf or hard of hearing in third through sixth grade.

The Illinois School for the Deaf (ISD) is offering a Creative Arts Camp for children who are deaf or hard of hearing and reside in Illinois. ISD is located on a 55-acre campus in Jacksonville, Illinois, and has excellent facilities with a well-stocked art classroom, deaf-friendly classrooms, two computer labs and various classrooms for ASL activities.

Participants will live in dormitories with two to a room on the ISD campus, eat meals in the cafeteria and practice various arts in various classrooms. The camp will open on June 17 after 1 p.m. and close at 1 p.m. on June 22.

The camp’s goal is to provide the participants the opportunity to improve communication and socialization skills while learning dance, art, technology and ASL expression.

The deadline for applying for the camp is May 11.

During the day, participants will be taught a dance routine, create a mixed media art project, learn how to develop designs on a computer and participate in ASL expression activities. During the evenings, various recreational activities will be offered. An exhibition program will be held on June 22 beginning at 11 a.m. in the High School Media Center.
