ASL summer camp comes to Calgary

June 17, 2017 by  

American Sign Language is an important communication tool for Calgary’s hearing impaired, and a summer camp has been planned for the city for attendees to learn this skill for themselves.

Deaf and Hear Alberta will be hosting the event, which will teach signing skills to those aged 16 and up. Attendees will have a chance to learn how to use sign language whether they are just starting out or wish to hone and expand their knowledge of it if they are currently proficient. The organizers have planned for it to be a fun experience, and beginner, intermediate and advanced level instruction will be available.

Each person who participates in the training will receive a certificate, and those interested in taking part but aren’t sure which level is right for them are asked to contact Ms. Cindy Pilz at cindyp@deafandhearalberta.ca for assistance.

Attendees are reminded that they will need to bring along a lunch and snacks, as these will not be provided. An area printer that designs customized stationery will be able to craft personalized certificates for each person who attends courses such as this.

The opportunity to learn sign language will run from August 14th to 17th from 8:30am until 4:00pm each day. It will be held at Deaf and Hear Alberta, which can be found at 63 Cornell Road. More details can be found on the organization’s website.
