Every 2 years Deaf Blind Access of the South (DBAS) offers adults who are Deaf-Blind (or Hard-of-Hearing/Low-vision in any combination) a rare chance to get together with others like themselves and have Support Service Providers (SSPs) to enable them to communicate effortlessly.
Participants at DBAS Camp will have the opportunity to create an individualized schedule of activities based upon their interests. The daily schedule starts as early as 7:30 am and can continue until 10:00 pm or later (all depending on the camper’s preferences)!
Here is a sample of some of the types of activities provided:
Arts & Crafts, Adapted Games
Themed Parties & Celebrations
Field Trips (Many different places)
Motorcycle rides (Passengers)
And so much more!
The total cost for Campers is $360. Payment in full must be received by 08/31/2017. Cancellations and requests for refunds must be received by 09/08/2017.
3 hot meals are served daily at Warms Springs. If you leave camp on a Field Trip, you may have to pay for your lunch.
Camp is held at the beautiful 940-acre Roosevelt Warm Spring Institute for Rehabilitation (RWSIR) in Warm Springs, GA (1-1/2 hours south of Atlanta airport). Transportation to and from the airport can be arranged and transportation at the camp is provided. There is a lake for water sports, trails, a swimming pool, basketball courts, Wi-Fi, and lots of gathering areas to make lifelong friends.
Accommodations are rustic but comfortable. The rooms are temperature controlled, clean linens are supplied, and the walkways between buildings are easily navigated.
