Camp Dates: August 18-22, 2020
Fee for Campers: To be determined
Campers, get ready for this wonderful experience that awaits you! Have you ever been in a situation where your words went “unspoken”? Have you ever had so much to say but just could not get those words out? Have you ever met another person that stutters? Have you ever felt insecure when speaking? We want to let you know that you are not alone. Our goal for each camper is to have there own experience. We want you to feel free to be yourself, to speak freely even if you stutter, to gain confidence and to learn and use proven strategies to help with your fluency in a non-judgmental environment.
About the Camp
Camp Words Unspoken is an overnight camp that includes 5 days and 4 nights of accommodation in a beautiful outdoor setting. The cost of the camp includes food and beverages, lodging separated by gender and age group, speech strategies incorporated in a relaxed-fun manner and recreational activities that are engaging and bring the campers together! The intent of our camp is to promote self-confidence in an interactive setting while ensuring that every camper is comfortable and happy with his or her own achievements.
Campers will participate in a variety of outdoor activities which include: therapeutic fluency skill building and strategy use, swimming, canoeing/kayaking, archery, fishing, hiking, athletic field games, arts & crafts, fire by friction, team building exercises and more!!
Financial assistance may be available for those who qualify upon completion and review of the required mandatory scholarship application.
For those teens interested in an opportunity to be alongside C.I.T Director Matt Didishiem, to develop leadership skills and to serve as mentors for the younger campers, you are encouraged to apply as a CIT. CIT’s will participate in both individual and group speech/recreational activities with the younger campers promoting self confidence. Activities will include team building, nature connection, archery, athletic field games, waterfront activities and more. The program will teach values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We are looking for high school aged teens to be part of this special program!
High school teens who are not interested in the CIT program will enjoy the same benefits and fun-filled experiences as the other campers.
