Camp HERO makes lasting impression
BU’s Education of the Deaf/Hard of Hearing Program recently wrapped up its ninth year of Camp HERO, an annual week-long summer experience at Camp Victory, Millville, for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Campers, who range in age between 6 to 17 years, spent the Olympics-themed week learning about different foreign countries and practicing their communication skills through a series of activities, crafts and group challenges.
Camp HERO, which is organized and run by undergraduate and graduate students in BU’s nationally accredited program, is one of the few camps in the country solely dedicated to children who are deaf/hard of hearing. The camp gives BU students a unique hands-on experience in developing lesson plans and teaching children who are deaf/hard of hearing. Photo gallery | Video
