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! 

 
All campers are paired with a trained one-on-one camp counselor for the week.

"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."
