This summer will bring to the coastal mountains of central California the 4th Annual Building Bridges Camp put on by the Bridge School, a private school for individuals who are physically challenged and nonspeaking in Hillsborough, California. Again this year, camp will bring together a diverse and dynamic group of individuals. Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) system users aged 6–18 come to camp to have fun, talk to other kids, hang out with their friends and counselors, and in the process learn about using their devices. Teachers, therapists, care givers, and paraprofessionals come to camp to learn about augmentative communication and assistive technology (and to have fun too). Brothers and sisters of AAC system users also come to camp.
