What is Camp H.E.A.R. ?

Camp H.E.A.R. is a one of its kind retreat designed specifically for children with hearing loss and their families.  The entire family is invited to attend and spend the weekend at Long View ranch in beautiful Mosheim TN.  Best of all the entire weekend is offered at NO COST thanks to a grant from the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities!

Children will participate in traditional summer camp activities like fishing, horseback riding, and night time campfires plus enjoy a few special surprises. 

Who can attend ?

Camp H.E.A.R. is open to any child age 4-15 with documented hearing loss AND their immediate family (due to space and budget limitations we ask that only siblings and members of the campers family living in the same household attend). Ages 16 and up are encouraged to contact us for information on becoming a Teen Leader at camp.

NEW:  The Camp H.E.A.R. Picnic:      Join us at Long View Ranch on May 1, 2021 for our first ever camp H.E.A.R. Reunion Picnic!  This one day event is a great way to reunite with friends from camp, Network with parents, and enjoy being back "home" at LVR!   Never been to Camp H.E.A.R.????  This is a great opportunity to come see what all the fuss is about without spending the night (but trust us, you'll leave wanting to come back in September!)

*Please note: Online registration does not guarantee a spot at camp. A more detailed registration packet will be mailed to you and campers will be notified when their spot is confirmed. Unfortunately space is limited and we can only accept a fixed number of families. Preference will be given to families within The Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities service area.  (This includes the counties of Carter, Greene, Hamblen, Hancock, Hawkins, Johnson, Sullivan, Unicoi and Washington in Tennessee and Buchanan, Dickenson, Lee, Russell, Scott, Smyth, Tazewell, Washington and Wise in Virginia.)  Because of the nature of camp, preference will also be given to children seeking a  hearing and spoken language outcome.  Questions about camp can be e-mailed to
