Camp Dogwood

Conference 2016 has come to an end. We had a great time with two days of haptics  and there is now an NCDBA Artisan Guild. More information to come in the next issue of the newsletter, expected around April 1st (and that’s no joke!)

Now that conference is over, we are changing gears and getting ready for some fun this fall with Camp Dogwood! Applications for campers are now available under the Events tab above or go directly to the application here. This year’s camp theme is Grease  (from the movie and play). Tshirt logo and order form on the last page. Camp this year is based on first come first serve. If you need financial assistance, be sure to let your Deaf-Blind specialist know as soon as possible and we hope to see you there!

Website Changes

You may have noticed that the NCDBA website has changed slightly. We have a brand new Resource center, which is a work in progress. Included in the resource section is an “In the News” page.

We have a new Events section. There is an events calendar for NCDBA events (click on events for the calendar) and you will also find the Camp Dogwood and Conference information under Events.

More to come later this fall and early 2016!

Camp Dogwood 2015

Are you ready for camp? We have just 3 weeks until Deaf-Blind weekend at camp starts for 2015! In case you forgot, the theme this year is the old west! It’s a combination of theme suggestions for cowboys and Native Americans. We have a lot planned this year and should be a fun weekend for all!
