Camp Sertoma is promoted as a week of fun where a skilled staff of outdoor
education specialists work with campers to ensure a positive experience for all.
The cabins are usually grouped by age level and divided into two categories:
sign and visual communication only vs. sign and auditory communication. Both
large and small group activities offer opportunities to learn about oneself and
develop an appreciation for others.
Campers are encouraged to do things for
themselves which fosters independence and responsibility. This means they have
to decide to climb Smitty's Revenge, touch a snake, put a leech on a hook, or
hundreds of other experiences that will expand their horizons.
It means that a
child that is "the only deaf kid in town" is able to spend time with
peers who are the same as they are. Strong friendships and lifelong
relationships result from the intimate atmosphere of group camping. As a cabin
group, campers live and play together in an environment free from communication
