PHOENIX, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, July 6, 2020 / — Patrick Bass is proud to be leading the American Sign Language camp at Arizona State University in Fall 2020 for middle school and high school students.

Patrick Bass has many years of in-depth experience teaching young people and encouraging them to dive deep into sign language to become more engaged with the deaf community.

The ASU ASL camp is available to students from grade 8 to grade 12. In order to be eligible, students must have completed at least one year of studying American Sign Language (or equivalent) by June 2020.

The camp will include more than 25 hours of classroom instruction and students will be able to put their classroom skills to work in a safe environment of learning. Faculty from New College’s Disability Studies will come into the class and share how learning sign language can put them on the path for success.

“My teaching is structured around interacting, playing games using vocabulary, and using self-discovery activities and team building to build self-confidence for students,” says Patrick Bass.

“ASL students’ confidence in signing will soar as they engage in a fun camp atmosphere and have opportunities to mingle with the deaf community.”
