Winter DHH Camp


(P) My perspective is that this was my first year at DHH winter camp. I was also the only girl in my group of 4. I was in a cabin with a different school that was all deaf and it was challenging.

(E) My experiences at DHH winter camp were ranging from outside activities to indoor activities. Some outdoor activities were broom-ball, petting zoo, and tubbing. A few indoor activities are crafts, cabin time, meeting other kids with hearing loss, games, and learning about my accommodations.

(F) Some of my feelings at winter camp were scared because I was scared of hurting my finger again after surgery. I was happy when i was making new friends at winter camp. I had enjoyment when I was petting the animals, meeting new people, and getting to know the 3 boys in my group with hearing loss. I was also frustrated when it came to cabin time with the other school because they had all deaf students and no one in our group could speak sign language.

(B) I believe that DHH camp is important so that we can see others like us with hearing loss. I think that it is important to wear your hearing aids all the time so you can communication with others.

(V) I value nature because I like seeing animals, the trees, the flowers, and the waves on the water. I also value the seasons and how they change even though I hate winter with all my heart but it is sometimes pretty to see the snow fall slowly. Seeing the leafs change from green to red, orange and yellow is amazing to watch and take pictures of. The summer is my favorite season because it is warm out and you can go swimming, bike riding, and play in the sun in your shorts and tank tops. But spring is my next favorite season with all the flowers growing and the water puddles to jump in plus it is the best time to get all muddy.
