AAC Camp Alberta


Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is a set of tools and strategies that can help people who are unable to rely on verbal speech to communicate. AAC systems may include gestures or signs, picture/word boards, mobile devices with communication apps, and/or speech generating communication devices.

AAC Camp Alberta is a weekend family camp for children aged 6 - 19 years who use speech generating communication devices and their families to enjoy fun camp activities while they practice social communication.

 

        AAC Camp Alberta 2021

          August 27 - August 29, 2021     
                 

Out of continued concern for the health and safety of participants, employees and volunteers amid the COVID-19 pandemic, AAC Camp Alberta will be ONLINE again in 2021. Virtual events allow for safe physical distancing, as well as easier access and a wider audience – we hope to see many returning and new campers from across Alberta and Canada!

Virtual AAC Camp activities include fun games, music & movement, arts & crafts, and more, all designed to encourage communication and interaction. There are also special sessions for siblings to connect with each other and learn more about AAC. Parent sessions will include a mix of presentations by AAC experts and opportunities for Q & A and networking.
