Academic, cultural and linguistic enrichment opportunities are offered after school to D/HH elementary-aged youth, their siblings, and children who have D/HH parents during the school year. Field trips are held once a month.
FCD provides several enrichment activities while school is out, including summer camps, educational programs, fun field trips and recreational activities. D/HH students get an opportunity to hang out with their friends and have fun together, just like their hearing peers.
We are thrilled to kick off our Summer Programming!
