The first School for the Deaf Camp was held Friday in Sioux Falls.

Almost 39 deaf and hard of hearing kids from all over the region were at the camp, which focused on self advocacy and allowed them to talk with others that have had the same experiences.

"We're just excited for each other to meet, for all the kids to meet each other," Kim Wadsworth, School for the Deaf's director of outreach, said. "Some have hearing aids, some have implants, some sign, some do not sign, but [they're] all kids and [they're] all learning from each other."

The event was the first time the Sioux Falls School District and the South Dakota School for the Deaf have teamed up.
