Camp ImpAACt is a specialized program for campers who use alternative communication methods to interact, hosted by the Ellis School every summer.
This is a one of a kind program, offered in the Southeast, for children who otherwise might not get a camp experience.
This year's theme of "Gimme Five" had each day of camp focused one of the five senses and exploring our world!
"Camp ImpAACt provided a loving, social camp experience for my daughter! She came in every morning with a huge smile on her face!"
-Haley, Camp ImpAACt 2017 Parent

"I volunteered with the Ellis School this summer as a one-on-one counselor and I was so impressed by their focus on developing the communication skills of every student, regardless of their ability. I saw tangible improvement in so many of the kids in just a week."
