Chatter Matters! - Variety - the Children's Charity of Wisconsin

Chatter Matters! Communication Camp – Through a partnership with University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, graduate speech pathology students and other student volunteers and instructors host this overnight camp for children with special needs who use assistive communication devices. Additional family members, including siblings up to age 16 are welcome to participate.

This camp is available to children ages 5-15 who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication and their families.

What makes Chatter Matters unique is that it’s just like a traditional summer camp, but the activities are fully adapted for AAC users age 5-15. Through activities like arts & crafts, adaptive sports, games, campfires and music, children learn to improve their communication device use. By allowing parents and siblings to attend, families have fun, create lasting family memories and bond with other families of children with special needs.

Camp scholarships are available. Contact Dua at dua@varietywi.org for more information.

Please visit UW-Whitewater’s website for more information.
