This unique camp is available free of charge for parents and children who use a Dynovox/Dynamyte augmentative device to communicate.
Parents have the opportunity to meet with other parents to discuss concerns in a supportive environment. In addition, technical support from the Dynavox company is available to provide programming needs and discuss transition goals. Parent surveys indicate an overwhelming positive experience with the service and support provided by Camp McYack.
This camp is funded by the Jackson County, state transition grant, and donations from local companies.
Cabins are available for free to sleep over or hotel phone numbers can be given out upon request. You must bring your own bedding if you are staying in a cabin.
