The Charleston Battery visited Camp Communication last Thursday in conjunction with the camps "Cheering for Hearing" theme week. Arthur Bosua, Vincenzo Candela, and Nico Rittmeyer participated in the morning portion of the camp leading small drills, games, and showing off some of their professional skills for the children attending camp.
Camp Communication is a one-week summer camp designed for children who have suffered hearing loss. Nevitte Morris, who leads the coordination of Camp Communication, is a speech-language pathologist at MUSC. "This year we have thirty-two children between the ages of four and twelve with some type of hearing loss," said Morris.
The camp is fully funded by the Mount Pleasant Sertoma Club and is supported by MUSC who provides it with a speech pathologist and audiologist. "This week we've been talking about sports so we were so excited to have you all out! Many of these children don't have the opportunity to learn skills like this from professionals."
