Camp T.A.L.K.S: Talking and Learning with Kids who Stutter
Camp TALKS at the Bill Wilkerson Center is a week-long day camp for children and teens who stutter (8-16) and their families. Camp runs the first full week of June. It is an opportunity to meet and interact in an environment that is accepting, supportive, positive, and fun.
Camp TALKS' mission is to empower children and teens who stutter to become confident communicators by developing understanding and acceptance of their stuttering, tools for improving communication, and self-advocacy skills for educating others in the community about stuttering, in a supportive, interactive, and enjoyable Summer camp venue, with parental involvement.
Parents and family meet Monday morning and Friday afternoon, the week of Camp. They will meet to discuss stuttering, share their stories, and talk about how to better support their children's journeys with their stuttering.
Our goal is to help children and teens who stutter become more confident communicators who can communicate how, where, when, and with whom they want!
