    discover who they are and who they want to be!

    Discovery Retreat is a place for students, of both oral and signing backgrounds, to interact with a variety of peers as they all seek to discover who they are and who they want to be! These retreats focus on promoting open-minded attitudes towards all types of communication, meeting peer and adult role models, and career exploration.

    A typical Discovery Retreat includes team-building and problem-solving activities, a low ROPES challenge course, skits, and free time for games and socialization.

    Oral and sign language interpreters, as well as CART (captioning), are provided for large group activities.
