Lauren Retta, age 10

I love it, because it’s where you’re around other kids that are just like you. It’s where you can be yourself.

Lauren Retta, age 10

Cochlear Implant Camp serves children ages 4 to 11. Audiologists, speech-language pathologists and graduate students provide listening and speech-language therapy that is tailored to each child’s individual goals. Therapy is woven throughout each activity including rock wall climbing, fishing, music and dance, arts and crafts and water play.

“Everybody wants their child to succeed and to grow and to be a positive influence and give back someday, and I think this is going to give Lauren that direction in life.” – Michelle Retta, Lauren’s mother

“It touches my heart to see a parent that travels from Oklahoma or Arkansas or from all over just to come to this camp. There’s nothing in the area like it, and having it in our backyard has been such a blessing.” – Megan Leadingham, parent
