CAMP JULIENA'S HISTORY
Eleanor Foshee and Pat Ford established Camp Juliena in 1992 as a way to promote meaningful social interaction among Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing children. While supportive of mainstream education for students with hearing loss, both women felt strongly about giving these students the opportunity to socialize exclusively with their Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing peers. When it was founded, Camp Juliena became the first summer program in Georgia for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing children. Today, Camp Juliena continues to inspire hundreds of campers each year with positive Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing role models (counselors) and equip them with valuable leadership, communication and social skills.
