Camp Overbrook: In Sign 2002 Brings Deaf/Hard of Hearing
Children Together for Summer Fun

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia Deaf Apostolate will sponsor Camp Overbrook: In Sign 2002, a summer day camp designed specifically for children who are deaf/hard of hearing. Approximately 45 children are pre-registered to attend this two week camp that provides an exciting and educational experience in which everyone uses American Sign Language.

Monday through Friday
July 15-26, 2002
9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary
Wynnewood, PA

Some of the daily events include bible study, arts and crafts, drama, sports and swimming. There are also special afternoon activities which accent the performing arts in American Sign Language. These include a puppetry workshop, a deaf storyteller and an animal show.

Educators experienced in American Sign Language direct the camp. For the past eight summers, Camp Overbrook served children ages six to 14. This year, children under age six will attend selected afternoon events with their parents.

Editor's Note: Please contact the Office for Communications if you are interested in covering a session. The best video opportunities are during the special events/activities in the afternoon. These sessions take place between 12:45 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.
