Building Bridges Camp is designed to give individuals who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and Assistive Technology (AT) an opportunity to develop their communication skills in a fun, motivating, no-pressure environment. Each year, 40 campers ages 5-17 years, attend a week-long overnight camping experience.
