August 13: ASL Day Camp


Richland County 4-H, Vernon County 4-H, and Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center are excited to announce that we will be co-hosting an ASL day camp this year! This event is being planned by Deaf/Hard of Hearing youth who communicate with ASL. Activities will be co-taught by these youth leaders with support from adults who are also Deaf or have experience using ASL. ASL interpreters will also be present.

Who: Any youth statewide in grades 3-12 ready for an inclusive day at camp focused on communicating in ASL. This is a great camp for hearing youth who want to learn ASL or Deaf youth ready to have summer fun in a signing environment. You do not need to be a member of 4-H to sign up!

When: August 13, 9:30 am – 4 pm

Where: Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center, N194 County Rd N, Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965

What to bring: Closed toes shoes, a bagged lunch, and a water bottle. We will provide snacks and all supplies needed for activities.

Cost: $10. Scholarships are available. Please email for more information!

Optional Adult Activity:
Many adults drop their youth off at day camp and then don’t know how to spend their time, so we are excited to offer an adult activity option! For an additional $10 per person, you can spend the afternoon canoeing/kayaking and hiking with a trained naturalist. This activity will take place from 12:30-3:30 pm. We will provide the required gear including boats, paddles, and lifejackets. The plan for the day is to canoe/kayak approximately 1/2 mile to the beach on Blackhawk Island. We will then hike for about 3 miles while exploring the unique old-growth oak forest and sandstone cliffs before returning to our canoes to come back to the mainland.
