Troy University to host college prep camp for Deaf and Hard of Hearing students

Posted: Friday, 05 June 2015

TROY - High school upper classmen and recent graduates who are deaf or hard of hearing will get a preview of college life June 7-13 as Troy University plays host to Camp Success.

The camp is designed to provide training and information that will assist students in being successful in the college setting, said Judy Robertson, director of Troy University's Interpreter Training Program (ITP).

"This camp is designed to provide deaf and hard of hearing students an opportunity to come to a college setting and further develop skills that may not be covered in their individual classrooms," Robertson said. "We will teach budgeting, the do's and don'ts of interacting with a college professor and other skills that will benefit students."

Students from TROY's Interpreter Training Program will provide assistance for communication and activities. Campers will also have the chance to participate in team-building activities at Camp Butter and Egg.

Camp Success is sponsored by the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services, TROY ITP and Troy University.
