Why The Asterisk (*)?
We serve such a diverse base. Many people have their own preferences for their identities. Also, it’s our dream of having an united community. We came up with an umbrella term to help describe the diverse people we work with and proudly support. We use Deaf* as an all-inclusive word to include those who identify as D/deaf, Deaf-Blind, hard of hearing, late deafened, and more. We use Deaf Community* to include all who are Deaf*, their relatives and friends, and allies like interpreters and advocates.
The History of Aspen Camp
We have come a long way since 1967. We couldn’t have done it without the vision of our founders as well as the support of team members, alumni, donors, and volunteers like you.
