Summer Program 2014

New Mexico Challenge: The Wild West

June 15 - 27, 2014

HikingNMSD’s summer program is specifically designed to provide deaf and hard of hearing children with the unique opportunity to open their eyes and experience new ideas, situations, people and cultures.

Full two week participation is expected. Tuition and room and board for this two-week adventure are provided free of charge to eligible children and youth from New Mexico who will be in grades Preschool -12 this fall.

  • Preschoolers age 5 and under can attend as day students, Monday - Friday for both weeks.
  • Local children ages 6 and 7 can stay in the residential cottages during the week. Weekend accommodations can be arranged for non-local children.
  • Children ages 8 and up will stay on campus for the full two weeks and will go camping.


We offer a place where academic and non-academic activities come together in fun and adventurous ways. Students forge strong friendships and expand their understanding of their community and the world.

Family participating in Family to Family Weekend  - Summer 2012

Family to Family Weekend is packed with family-relevant workshops and ASL learning activities for children and family members. NMSD families and NMSD Outreach families mingle and learn in an informal environment, learning from energetic instructors.

Workshop topics are chosen to address family-

specific communication. Family to Family Weekend provides vocabulary and instruction that enhances their communication immediately! While parents

attend workshops, deaf and hearing siblings have a chance to play and learn together in a comfortable learning environment. Families also 

benefit from sharing their own stories with each other!

ASL Immersion is an immersion program in American Sign Language (ASL) that allows participants to understand how it feels to depend on one’s eyes rather than one’s ears to communicate and interact with the world. There are periods of instruction, including modeling, creative invention, mime, vocabulary, and of course, sentence structure. Students practice with each other, their teachers, members of the NMSD staff, and visiting members of the Deaf Community. On field trips, they try their skills on the Santa Fe population. Participants leave

with a more complete understanding of Deafness and an improved ability to

communicate in ASL.
