This free two-day camp helps young people who stutter (ages 8-18) develop self-confidence, improve communication skills, and build community.
Camp SAY Across the USA: Memphis offers team-building and confidence-building exercises, plus a broad variety of fun games and group activities to choose from, ranging from improvisation to arts and crafts. Campers also participate in small groups to create an original artistic work — such as a play, poem, song, dance, or visual art piece — under the guidance of Camp SAY’s seasoned leadership staff and the Orpheum’s teaching artists and programming staff.
Camp SAY culminates with campers participating in an inspiring presentation, where they share their original work with a supportive audience of caregivers, families, and friends (each child can choose whether or not they wish to participate in this final presentation). It’s truly a time of celebration and empowerment, with each child receiving the time they need to express themselves fully!
Camp SAY offers an exceptional staff-to-camper ratio, with counselors who are experts at working with young people who stutter. Camp also includes an optional parent education workshop and support group, where parents can learn more about stuttering, share their experiences, and meet other parents of kids and teens who stutter.
Each camper receives a free camp T-shirt, and camp includes all programming supplies, plus breakfast and lunch daily.
