KODA Camp is run by Deron Emmons, Deaf, the original founder of Ohio’s KODA Camp in 2000. Deron has over 25 years of experience working with Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Hearing, and KODA/CODA individuals and families.

This camp is for hearing children who have deaf parents and/or grandparents.  Kids Of Deaf Adults (KODAs) have the experience of living in the Deaf World and the Hearing World. This camp is an opportunity for KODAs to meet new friends, share their stories, share their values and insights, develop life skills to prevent alcohol and drug use, develop leadership skills by participating in team-building activities and much more!!
