"Camp Catch Them Young" cancelled

This is a letter by ’Bunmi Aina regarding the cancellation of "Camp Catch Them Young".

June 25, 2019

It is with the deepest regret that I must announce the cancellation of Camp Catch Them Young, which was scheduled for July 14-21, 2019.
We were encouraged by the enthusiastic responses from all over to the announcement of this inaugural camp. Many who responded to our first email blast announcing Camp Catch Them Young recognized the importance of this opportunity to young Deaf high school students of color, and to Deaf communities at large. However, actual registration did not match the noted enthusiasm.

Consequently a decision has been very regretfully reached to cancel this inaugural camp. We are deeply sorry that not being able to execute our event will have caused unfulfilled expectations, but are hopeful that the lessons learnt from this experience will result in a 2020 iteration where enthusiasm and registration match.

We anticipate announcing plans for 2020 in early November 2019.

Very truly yours,

’Bunmi Aina
