Please be aware that as of today, the NCDBA Camp Dogwood Deaf-Blind Weekend is now full for campers staying on campus. Any applications received after today will be returned and Camp already has a waiting list.
However, there is a second option for the first time this year–Day Campers. You can apply for $75 per day, but you are responsible for your own lodgings off-campus, transportation to and from lodgings, and SSPs.
Come join at the 5th annual Poker Run June 4th in Smithfield, NC.
We have a new page under events for the Poker Run. Hope to see you there!
If you would like to SSP for Camp Dogwood’s Deaf-Blind Weekend, the application is now live. Hope to see you there!
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!
