Chatter Matters Communication Camp

Through our partnership with UW-Whitewater, graduate speech pathology students and other student volunteers and instructors host this overnight camp for children with special needs who use assistive communication devices and their immediate family members, free of charge. This life-changing experience is made possible thanks to caring people just like YOU – our donors, partners and special sponsors!

What makes Chatter Matters unique is that it’s just like a traditional summer camp, but the activities are fully adapted for all ages and abilities. Through activities like arts & crafts, adaptive sports, games, campfires and music, children learn to improve their communication device use. By allowing parents and siblings to attend, families have fun, create lasting family memories and bond with other families of children with special needs.
