Sertoma President Dennis Lawler and his wife, Judy, of Liberty, Mo. visited Camp Sertoma today. Randy Mercer, governor of the Henry C. Carter District, sponsored the event today and prepared a wonderful lunch (see photos below). Keith Russell was joined by several Winston-Salem Sertom Club, Camp Sertoma Club, Raleigh Sertoma Club and Alamance County Sertoma Club members and other guests. The weather was fair and didn’t start drizzling until we were under the gym porch eating lunch. Keith Russell showed us all the newly renovated dining hall, kitchen, Cheshire Hall’s lobby, the chapel, the 2 classrooms and the 3 cabin circles. Afterward, committee chair John Kelly drove them to see the horse barn and riding ring, the Doug Council High Adventure course, and the campground. President Lawler and Judy were very complimentary of the camp and its facilities. A very successful event!

The Atlantic Region Sertoma Deaf Camp Committee is in need of signing Cabin Counselors and Deaf or Hard of Hearing Cabin Counselors to provide leadership and daily support of deaf, hard of hearing or hearing children with deaf or hard of hearing family members for our 28th annual Sertoma Deaf Camp. The Sertoma Clubs of North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland support this camp. The camp is held at Sertoma 4-H Educational Center, near Hanging Rock State Park in Danbury, NC. Counselors will be required to attend training with the regular summer staff at Sertoma 4-H Center and then provide assistance and leadership during the week of Deaf Camp.
Training day: TBD
Camp week: June 19-24,2011
Applicants should have skills to work with deaf, hard of hearing and hearing campers. Prior experience with working with children in a camping environment will be considered. Applicants must be at least 18 and have completed high school.
Interested in working as part of the Deaf Camp Staff this summer? If so please download and fill out the Staff Application and email to Maggie Blehm, Deaf Camp Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org .
It’s going to be a great summer!
Have you made plans to attend fun weekend? Come and enjoy the relaxing environment and the fellowship with other Sertomans. It is also a great way to introduce new members to our multi-state sponsorship, Camp Sertoma of North Carolina. See the latest improvements that have been made to the camp property. And maybe even get into a little mischief along the way! I look forward to seeing you then.
Ninety-two happy campers enjoyed a great week of fun, outdoor activities, crafts and visiting Hanging Rock State Park. Kudos go to summer program director Robert Banks and 4-H for planning an excellent program for the campers. A big thank you to Michael Hoffman for his six years of dedication and service as deaf camp program coordinator.
None of this would have been possible without the continued support of the Sertoma Clubs in North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland. Be on the lookout for pictures from camp and a video showing all the fun the campers enjoyed.
The NC Hearing Loss Association raised $34,136.00 in its first Walk4Hearing. This is wonderful for the first year of an event. The final tally for the Sertoma Clubs was $1455.00!! Thanks go out to everyone who supported this event. The amount we raised will be given to Camp Sertoma to give a camper a scholarship to deaf camp.
