Summer Programs

FSDB is planning a variety of academic enrichment programs during the summer of 2024 for students who are deaf/hard of hearing, blind/visually impaired, or deafblind.

Summer Quest 2024

Ready for an adventure in the oldest city with new friends! Summer Quest is an overnight camp offering Expanded Core Curriculum (ECC) activities during the day and various recreational and social experiences in the evening. Blind/Visually Impaired students will learn about assistive technology, orientation and mobility, and daily living skills development, while deaf/hard of hearing campers will focus on leadership, self-advocacy, team-building skills, and life skills.  Recreational activities include kayaking in Hospital Creek, swimming in our indoor pool, letting your imagination inspire works of art, playing team sports in our gym, and dancing your heart out on stage!

 

If you are between the ages of 8 and 17, are deaf/hard of hearing, blind/visually impaired, or deafblind, and live in Florida, you can experience a summer you'll never forget. Application Deadline is April 26, 2024
