Looking for a camp for Black Deaf & KODA? Bay Area Black Deaf Advocates is offering a summer program from July 18 - 22!

See the post for more information.Black Deaf/Koda Youth Camp!!!! There are not a lot of camps available for Black Deaf and Kids Of Deaf Adults (KODA) that offer educational values, intersectionality, leadership, self-esteem, problem-solving, and feelings of empowerment, and independence and a variety of enrichment activities that encourage students to grow and thrive through meaningful participation.

We decided to establish our first summer program for our Black Deaf and KODA children in two groups of 1-5 grades and 6-12 grades! This program is also greatly beneficial for Deaf and KODA children who can achieve the same benefits as their Deaf and hearing peers in their naive signing language when activities are inclusive and meet their unique needs.

Please fill out the medical form if your child/ren has any type allergies

Image Description:

The flyer background is yellow, leading with California School of the Deaf, Fremont and Bay Area Black Deaf Advocates logos. There are three youth engagement pictures highlighted to the right with white borders. To the left in bold text reads, “Black Deaf/Koda Youth Camp.” There’s a small image of an open camping tent, in turquoise and orange.

“Fun & Creative Activities, Workshops for Boys & Girls, K-12th Grade”

An image of matching camp fire (turquoise, pink, and yellow) and compass is located towards the bottom half of the flyer. There are two round circles highlighting the date (blue background, white font) and cost (white background, blue font.)

“Batch 1: July 18th-22nd, Admission $185”

Following is a large pink box of information that reads:

“Activities: Storytelling, Outbound games, Drawing & Painting, and Workshops
California School for the Deaf, Fremont, 39350 Galladuet Dr. Fremont, CA 94538”
Registration Link: www.babda.org/events

At the bottom, with blue background and white font:
