Camp Loud and Clear is a summer camp for children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing held at Holiday Lake in Appomattox County. Currently there is no other camp in Virginia that is specifically designed to meet the needs of children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing regardless of their degree of hearing loss or their chosen communication mode.
All the counselors at the camp will have experience working with children with hearing loss. There will be nationally certified interpreters present for the children who are Deaf. The Virginia Department of Deaf and Hard of Hearing is providing specialized equipment necessary for this camp.
It is important to offer such a camp as socializing is exceedingly difficult for individuals who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing and often results in isolation. Through Camp Loud and Clear, campers will develop lasting friendships while strengthening their social and coping skills.
Camp Loud and Clear is being supported by the Virginia Conference of The United Methodist Church’s Common Table and Commission on Disabilities as well as Longwood University, Radford University, and the Holiday Lake 4-H Educational Center.
