CAMP SAY: ACROSS THE USA - MEMPHIS
Camp SAY: Across the USA – Memphis is back! We are excited to invite young people who stutter from the Mid-South region to come together for this free, two-day camp that helps build confidence and community.
Working in partnership with SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young, we have developed an exciting day camp experience that prioritizes connection, collaboration, and FUN for kids and teens who stutter, ages 8-18.
Camp SAY: Across the USA - Memphis will offer a wide variety of games and activities that encourage community, creativity, and teamwork. Under the guidance of the Camp SAY leadership staff and the Orpheum’s teaching artists and programming staff, campers will work together in small groups to create original artistic pieces - short plays, comedy skits, poems, songs, dances, visual art - and share them with the larger group?(each child can choose whether or not they wish to participate in this final share).?It’s truly a time of celebration and empowerment, where everyone gets as much time as they need to speak and express themselves fully!
Camp SAY offers an exceptional staff-to-camper ratio, with counselors who are experts at working with young people who stutter. Camp also includes an optional parent education workshop and support group, where parents can learn more about stuttering, share their experiences, and meet other parents of kids and teens who stutter.
Each camper receives a free camp T-shirt, and camp includes all programming supplies, plus breakfast and lunch daily.
