When my children were young I use to sign them up for many different interactive and educational camps. I recall waiting on a long line to get a “slot” for the AMERICAN GIRL doll camp being offered through our local parks and recreation center. From sports to creative art camps my kids sampled them all. Most of the time they were fun and no complaints were heard.
It is because I think learning at any age should be FUN and INTERACTIVE that I am offering this summer via my company SIGNING FAMILIES an online LIVE sign language “camp”. This will be for kids and their families to learn the basics of sign language as an “online summer camp program”.
WHEN WILL IT BE OFFERED?
The online camp dates now available are the week of June 17th or the week of June 24th. If there is great interest then more online camp dates will be added.
The camp will be for one online hour per day for five consecutive days. It will be group instruction. Time TBD but most likely 1pmET, 11am PT
HOW WILL STUDENTS CONNECT?
All you would need to do is have the ability for video chat online. We will most likely use SKYPE or a comparable system such as GOOGLE HANGOUT.
HOW MANY STUDENTS PER SESSION?
The class will have up to 9 students involved which will make for great conversation and practice. Each student also will have an extra 60 minutes during the week for one on one questions and practice.
DO WE GET ANY MATERIALS?
In addition, each person who signs up will get our SIGNING FAMILIES ASL FOLDER, ASL POSTER and one DVD from our catalog (either Baby, Toddler and Preschool Sign Language or Sign Language for Emergency Situations).
WHAT WILL THE ONLINE CAMP COVER?
* Basic greetings in ASL
* People an common places
* School words
* Alphabet and numbers
* Basic animals, transportation and action words
THE COST per STUDENT?
The total cost for the online camp AND the materials mentioned above is $79 ( EARLY BIRD special $69 if signed up by May 1, 2013)

A non-refundable down payment of $25 reserves your spot. Down payment must be received within one week of signing up. Payment in full will be required by June 1, 2013.
WILL YOU OFFER INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS FOR THOSE WHO WANT ANOTHER OPTION TO LEARN?
Yes, I offer 30 minute SKYPE sign language lessons or tutoring. The rates are $20 per session. No materials are included in this price. Adults and children may request individual sessions. I also welcome families with children who have special learning challenges and need adaptive sign language.
