Dear Rehabilitation Counselor for the Deaf/Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor:
Every summer, Gallaudet University, through its Youth Programs office, hosts several camp programs for deaf, and hard of hearing youth. This year’s camps are scheduled for June 20-27,2023 on our picturesque campus in Washington, D.C. Our Summer Youth Camps are designed for middle and high school students up to the age of 19. The camps provide stimulating summer learning and experiential opportunities that blend education, excitement, and enjoyment in a bilingual environment, rich in cultural diversity, located just minutes from the U.S. Capitol.
Gallaudet University is the world’s only university designed to be barrier-free for deaf and hard of hearing students. For more than 150 years, Gallaudet University has led advances in education for deaf and hard of hearing students and deaf rights worldwide. Today, students from across the United States and around the globe, diverse in perspective, backgrounds, interests, and communication styles, form an exciting learning community as they prepare for dynamic careers and a lifetime of growth.
We would like to call your attention to Discover College and Careers (DC²), one of our most popular camps. It is designed for college-bound deaf and hard of hearing students entering grades 10-12. Campers will work on developing their transition plans; identifying their interests and skills, and exploring different potential careers during career classes, leadership seminars, and educational field trips.
DC² will benefit campers in learning more about themselves and preparing them for success in the 21st century work environment. DC² will enable campers to return to school equipped with additional skills, knowledge, and abilities that will be applicable in preparing for their future career development. The following activities have been developed to support our goal in preparing our campers both personally and professionally:
DYF meets the goals of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS/PETS) program in the following areas:
DC² will take place from June 20-27, 2023. The camp fee is $750. This fee covers room, board and various transportation expenses during the camp itself. Campers are responsible for their own transportation costs to and from Washington D.C./Gallaudet University. We will provide round trip transportation to and from Union Station or Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA). Campers are encouraged to bring their own spending money as well.
We look forward to collaborating with you to support deaf and hard of hearing youth with their transition plans, and to start early in preparing for their future. For more information about our Summer Youth Programs, please see Summer Youth Camps.
Gallaudet University, chartered in 1864, is a private university for deaf and hard of hearing students.
