International youth mobility programme for Deaf, Hard of Hearing and hearing young people
An inclusive place - where you can play and know the Sign Language
september 4-10. 2021
The aim of the Sign Languge Playground Youth Camp is for young people to get to know a world where the way of communication is different but natural. We provide nonformal, improvisation-based, inclusive group activities where Deaf and hearing people can play together.
At the Sign Language Playground, we have created opportunities for full communication, free movement, independence, initiative and joint play, relying on a language that is a mother tongue and identity for the Deaf and a new world for the hearing.
