15TH ANNUAL KODAWEST CAMP
July 2 - July 8, 2023
KODAWest Camp is a place where Kids of Deaf Adult/s (ages 8-17) will enjoy a range of amazing experiences; explore their identities as bicultural individuals through increased awareness of ASL, Deaf culture and by sharing their own stories. They are raised in a world that is completely different from hearing families, where sound is not an instrumental part of their everyday lives. KODAWest aims to provide the hearing experience by exposing these children to music, and by providing a community where these children can connect with one another through similar backgrounds. This promotes a sense of comradeship and in understanding their unique identity that is being a KODA.
Camp Oakes, nestled up in the mountains and deep in the woods will provide the following unique outdoor activities: Swimming Pool, Canoeing, Archery, Fishing, Arts & Crafts, Nature Hikes, Rock Climbing Wall, High & Low Ropes Course, GaGa Ball, Beach Volleyball, Zip Line, Themed Meals, Observatory, Twilight Activities, Nightly Campfires, and more!
