This study is collecting survey information on speech, language, and hearing camps.  There are an increasing number of specialized camps across the country.  Individuals from all aspects of life with differing and challenging conditions participate in these camps on a yearly basis. Methods of intervention and measures of success vary (e.g., subjective, objective, qualitative, descriptive)  These camps provide a meaningful experience for their participants and this study is important in understanding how these camps are established and conducted, as well as adapting over time.  Studies like this one are important in providing new treatment options for those who may benefit from a change in intervention or therapy environments.
