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 up to two family members, free of charge. Additional family members, including siblings up to age 16 are welcome to participate for a fee of $225 per person. This life-changing experience is made possible thanks to caring people just like YOU – our donors, partners and special sponsors!

This camp is available to children ages 5-15 who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication and their families.

Date of camp: Thursday, June 18- Sunday, June 21, 2020

What makes Chatter Matters unique is that it’s just like a traditional summer camp, but the activities are fully adapted for AAC users age 5-15. 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.

Please visit UW-Whitewater’s website to begin the application process!  Applications are accepted via email until noon 3/16/20.

For more information, please contact us at (262) 777-2090 ext 108 or by email at contact@varietywi.org.

**Financial aid may be available on a case to case basis. **
