Camp Sertoma for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children
SERTOMA is SERvice TO MAnkind. It’s more than just how we got our name, it’s been our foundation for over 100 years. Sertoma volunteers across the country are unified with a single purpose: serve our communities and improve the lives of those who need help. Our mission and our passion is to improve the quality of life for those at risk or impacted by hearing loss through education and support.
Sertoma Clubs across North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland make Camp Sertoma happen each year. Sertoma members provide the volunteer leadership and support for Camp Sertoma for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children.
How to register for camp
Camp Sertoma for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children invites kids ages 8-16 who are Deaf or hard of hearing to join us in the beautiful sandhills of North Carolina at Millstone 4-H Center for a week of fun and adventure from June 25-30, 2017. Please download the 2017 CampSertoma Brochure & Application, fill out the Camp Application and send it in. While you're at it, please share it with your friends!
Camp Sertoma serves children ages 8-16 with any type of hearing loss, communication mode, or assistive listening technology. We also accept applications from CODA children (hearing Children of a Deaf Adult, or Siblings of a Deaf Child), as long as the hearing CODA camper is able to fluently communicate using American Sign Language.
Campers will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis as long as space is available. A non-refundable deposit of $25.00 made payable to Camp Sertoma Club of NC, VA & MD is required with the initial application. PLEASE NOTE: Register by May 1 for an early bird discount of $25 off the regular camp tuition rate.
Financial assistance in the form of "camp scholarships" enables campers to enjoy the camp experience, making camp more affordable to our campers and their families. Camp scholarships are available to qualified families who are unable to pay the total cost of a camp experience. A camper must be fully registered for Camp Sertoma to be considered for a camp scholarship. Camp scholarship applications are due by June 1. If you have questions about Camp Sertoma, please email SertomaDeafCamp@gmail.com. Our Camp Registrar (Sandy Waterman) and/or our Camp Program Coordinator (Stef Gardiner-Walsh) are happy to answer your questions.
Once the registrar has received your camper application, if you are accepted to camp, she will email you (the parent) the health form, code of conduct and what to pack list.
