Camp Sign Me Up
Camp Sign Me Up is an important program for BridgesTN and now BridgesWEST, one that allows us to share the beautiful language and culture of the Deaf community in a fun, interactive, summer day camp. These young learners then help us build a more inclusive world for our community.
BridgesTN is excited to present Camp Sign Me Up 2021. This year we are offering both in-person and virtual options! All campers will have fun, learn ASL, and get a t-shirt!
Our in-person camp will run from 9am to 3pm, Monday through Friday through June 25th and the weeks of July 12th and July 19th. Our focus is teaching American Sign Language on beginner, intermediate, and advanced tracks while incorporating arts & crafts, free play, and other activities.
The camp is led by Deaf instructors and is open to students in grades 3rd through 8th. We will consider 1st and 2nd graders based on availability and will accept applications from teenagers who wish to work as junior counselors. We will provide a pre-packaged snack each day. Campers will bring their own lunches, and we ask campers to bring refillable water bottles to use throughout the day. Onsite Camp Sign Me Up will be $110/per week. Before and after care are available for an additional fee. Information is on the registration form.
Our virtual Camp Sign Me Up is a summer subscription to lessons and activities. Lessons will meet virtually on Tuesdays and Thursdays through Zoom, and we will send fun activities to enjoy each week. Meeting weeks are the same as in-person camp. Space in virtual camp is not limited. Virtual camp is a one-time subscription fee of $150.
Thank you for your support and for being part of our Bridges for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing family! We look forward to seeing many smiling, eager faces and active, signing hands this summer!
