Camp Jabber Jaw

Camp Jabber Jaw

Funded in part by the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation Services Project START, Camp Jabber Jaw was established to provide a fun way for individuals to develop improved interactive communication skills. The campers are both individuals who utilize augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and those who do not but are of similar ages. Parents attend the camp with their child and have the opportunity to interact with other parents giving each an opportunity to share triumphs as well as disappointments. The camp has provided a forum for the development of friendships, facilitation of interactive communication, and fun.

Camp Jabber Jaw

"Safari" was the 2016 camp theme. The Campers began the week on Monday night by Setting Out on Safari. The campers engaged in a variety of activities throughout the week including a Jungle Obstacle Course, a Safari Map Expedition, animal detective game, encounter with Big Birds and Safari Treasure Hunt. The campers went horseback riding, swimming, dancing at Jamming in the Jungle and entertained guests on Friday with the play "Safari, So Good!". Counselors for the week were speech pathology graduate students from Mississippi University for Women, Jackson State University and The University of Southern Mississippi.
