with the Arizona Conservation Corps and the US Forest Service
October 3rd to 6th, 2019
CorpsTHAT in collaboration with the Arizona Conservation Corps and the US Forest Service is excited to announce the Arizona Stewardship Camp that will take place this fall, 10/3 to 10/6, in Flagstaff, Arizona. Intended for high school age students, the week will consist of a volunteer work project with the Arizona Conservation Corps, meeting Deaf US Forest Service employees and learning about their careers, and learning about the local ecology and basic camping skills. Participants will work with Deaf Outdoor experts, spend the week camping, enjoying the outdoors and interacting with fellow Deaf youth from Arizona and the local region.
All meals and camping equipment will be provided. Youth will be under the supervision of a trained Deaf Crew Leader and interpreters will be provided throughout the week.
This 10-week courses will be taught online and will have a maximum of three students per course, meeting for 2 hours each week, with an additional 30 minutes per week of one-on-one tutoring if needed. Courses are taught by a native Deaf ASL signer who has extensive experience working in the outdoor fields and will be able to adjust teaching styles and topics to fit the needs of the students. Along with basic vocabulary, students will learn an introduction to Deaf culture and etiquette tailored to outdoor settings. Course will be a consecutive 10 weeks but the start and end dates can be agreed upon between students and instructor.
To register, fill out the information and and in the note section write down your preferred start date, time and which days, M/W or T/TH, you would like to take the course. If you have any questions, please email Sachiko.
Co-workers or friends interested in taking this course together, please make a note in your registration form.
Environmental Education Curriculum
CorpsTHAT has seen first hand how early outdoor environmental experiences have a positive life long impact. Oftentimes these experiences are not accessible for young deaf children and as a result they miss out on those early exposures and are less likely to get involved in the outdoors as adults. In an effort to provide these experiences to Deaf children and youth, CorpsTHAT has developed outdoor environmental education that is geared towards Deaf learners and being taught in ASL.
Curriculum- Coming Soon!
