There is a summer camp for the children who are hard of hearing or deaf in Leesville.
It’s called Camp Wonder Hands, and it’s been going on for 22 years.
“The goal of Camp Wonder Hands is to afford an opportunity where hard of hearing, and deaf children come together, and their deaf culture is celebrated,” says camp director E.T. Taylor.
The Mike Bush Fantasy Baseball Camp for the deaf and hard of hearing is now in its 28th year. It helps empower kids with a disability and let them celebrate their ability.
