What is SSP?  

Support Service Providers (SSPs) are specially trained professionals who enable people who have both vision and hearing losses to access their environments and make informed decisions. SSPs provide them with visual and environmental information, sighted guide services, and communication accessibility. Here at EHC, SSP guides the deafblind campers throughout the day with fun activities, swimming, horseback riding, hiking, a day away from camp and social. We offer free SSP training the night before camp begins, Sunday, August 13th. 

SSP/Volunteers – No charge for food and lodging in exchange for guide/work
