14TH ANNUAL KODAWEST CAMP
Due to the uncertainty in the few months because of the COVID-19 outbreak, KODAWest Camp 2020 at Camp Nawakwa has been canceled. KODAWest has been reaching out to all parties involved and aim to reach a resolution for all.
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.
This year KODAWest Camp will be held at Camp Nawakwa. Located in the beautiful Angelus Oaks area of the San Bernardino Mountains, this private 14-acre site is in the middle of the National Forest. Camp Nawakwa is situated at an elevation of 6,850 feet at the northern foot of the San Gorgonio Wilderness.
There are many activities, including but not limited to: archery, climbing tower, paintball, tomahawks, team building, hiking, survival skills, nature explorations, campfires, canoeing, swimming, gaga ball and more!
