FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 Please submit payment of camp fee by check.

Checks should be made out to "Signs of Fun Camp" and mailed to the following address:

33 Warren Drive

Fredericksburg, Virginia 22405

Please note that camp fees increase after the late registration date. If the check is post marked before the late registration date, we will accept it at the normal registration price.

If camp fees have not been paid when camp starts, you may pay for registration in cash only when you drop off your camper.

How do I pay the camp fee?

Contact us as soon as you know you will be late. For the first 10 minutes we charge a fee of $5 and there is a charge of $1/minute thereafter. After 30 minutes you will be charged $35.

We need our team leaders to be able to go home, rest, and return refreshed and ready to care for campers the next day.

What happens if I'm late to pick up my camper?

We are a camp for Deaf and hard of hearing children. Additionally, we welcome the siblings of those DHOH campers.

Unfortunately, we are not a camp for Children of Deaf Adults (CODAs). If you are interested in a camp for CODAs check out:

What kind of camp are you?

Unfortunately, no. We are a day camp. Campers arrive at 9:00 AM and leave at 3:00 PM.

If your family would like to spend the night at camp, we recommend you the Wilderness Presidential Resort to discuss pricing and availability of lodging.

Can my child stay at camp overnight?

You are welcome to drop your camper off between 8:45 - 9:00 AM. Please pick your camper up from camp between 3:00 -3:15 PM.

When is pick-up and drop-off?

Campers should pack a backpack with:

  • Lunch in a lunchbox (no refrigerator available)

  • Water bottle(s)

  • Swimsuit and towel

  • Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses

Campers should wear:

  • Comfortable clothes for being active outdoors

  • Close toed shoes

What should my camper bring with them?

Heck yes you can! We welcome counselors from all over! In fact, we recommended counselors stay on-site (paid for by the camp).

Generally, counselors stay three to a trailer. They need to bring pillows, sheets, blankets, towels, and food. The trailer has AC, water, and electricity. The camper has a full bathroom and a full kitchen (fridge, stove, oven, sink, dishes; NO microwave).

Can I be a counselor if I live outside of Virginia?
 
 
 
 
 
 

Great question! The answer is mostly dependent on your proficiency in ASL. If you'd like to be a counselor, please head over to our "Become A Counselor" page and look over the qualifications. If there's another way you'd like to help, please reach out and contact us. We're happy to discuss options and find a place for you!

I'm learning ASL in college. Can I get involved with camp?

Camper Fees: Day camp or summer camp fees, even for camps centered around a sport or activity, qualify if the camp is selected to provide care while the parent or parents are at work. 
Donations: Most assuredly these are tax-deductible. Our information can be found on Guidestar* here:
