Welcome to Camp Woodbine
Camp Woodbine is a free, one day event designed as a retreat for hearing impaired children and their families. The Camp was founded by John T. McElveen, Jr. MD in honor of his father, a decorated WWII P-51 fighter pilot, whose "call sign" was "Woodbine 80".
Camp Woodbine will provide socialization, language stimulation and communication opportunities in a safe, fun and convenient environment for children and their families. The families will have the opportunity to interact with each other, share experiences, and exchange information. The camp will also allow parents to network with other families that are facing similar issues as well as attend educational classes while their children enjoy the camp activities.
Other groups, including children with disabilities, pediatric cancer patients and children facing other life-threatening or debilitating ailments will also utilize the camp.
Camp Woodbine is about making new friends, sharing experiences, strengthening the family unit through better communication, making memories and not worrying about being different due to disabilities or illness.
