JULY Adventurers Club – LEVEL: SilentAdventurers Club - LEVEL: Silent If you’re the hiking-climbing-kayaking-spelunking-gotta-get-out-there type, then the Adventurers Club is for you. Each week this club’s participants are encouraged to get out and about in their neck of the woods and then come back and share their experiences with the group. Outdoor experiences develop our minds and bodies, and it is fun to hear what friends are up to. Any recreational activities can be discussed: hiking, climbing, canoeing, backpacking, and more.
There is often a barrier facing Deaf and hard of hearing participants in outdoor education and recreation settings. The barriers are typically economic, educational, social, risk management, legal and accessibility. Participants in this Club will be challenged with considering how to make outdoor recreation more accessible to people who are Deaf. There are many benefits to experiencing outdoor education, experiential education, and outdoor recreation. It is worth our time to think of ways to make these things more inclusive.Themed Clubs are for students who have completed Introduction to ASL, know the Manual Alphabet and Numbers; have at least 100 signs in their noggin; have a working understanding of ASL; and can participate in a meaningful conversation in Sign Language. These Clubs are designed to be Conversational or Silent (advanced, where no voice used). The students in each group will decide how their group will communicate. Each Club lasts one month, and then another club can be chosen. The goal of each is to develop a deeper understanding of Deafness, the Deaf Experience and Deaf Culture, with the goal of ministering to and sharing the Gospel with people who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.
