Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, will host its fourth annual Deaf Basketball Camp June 6-9. The event is designed for hearing-impaired children ages 7 to 13.
Each day of the camp begins with Bible study, followed by instruction on basic basketball skills. Interpreters, hearing-impaired volunteers, and seminary students will be on hand to assist children in the program.
“The kids will be able to interact with each other, to learn the Word of God, and to have the same opportunity as anyone else to go to a camp,” said Kara Simmons, director of the seminary’s Sign School. “I think it’s important for them to have something special set aside just for them every year.”
Camp registration is $50 per person.
The Concordia Seminary Sign School offers instruction in American sign language for 10 weeks each quarter. The classes are free for seminary students and their families. Tuition for all others is $130, plus books.
