Camp D.O.V.E. (Deaf Outreach through Visual Effects), is a retreat that provides an opportunity for deaf and hard-of-hearing youth to share a unique camping experience in a Christian environment.
Camp D.O.V.E.’s program “offers the opportunity for all campers ages 8 to Senior in high school, deaf and hearing alike, to experience fun and fellowship in the common bonds of ASL (American Sign Language).” Campers enjoy a variety of activities like swimming, karate, dance, magic, arts and crafts, talent shows and games. But Visual Effects is much more than a camp. The non-profit organization began as a performing arts company in 1991 with six deaf actors and four hearing ones who have since presented hundreds of performances throughout the southeast in churches, schools and theaters that incorporate ASL, music, dance and drama.
When it comes to providing your children with fun memories, camping ranks up there as one of the most satisfying and rewarding experiences. As your children grow into teens and then move into adulthood, they will reflect on camp memories and consider them to be some of the finest times in their lives. They will fondly remember fun activities such as swimming, skits, art, music, dance, karate, games and campfires. They will smile as they treasure new friendships that could last a lifetime. Camp will be important to them, a crucial part of their childhood, and something they will always treasure. We are looking forward to seeing old campers again this year and meeting new campers, too. We can’t wait!!!!
