B.J. Blocker has retired from the executive director position of the Aspen Camp School for the Deaf. Judith Cross, a current member of the board, will assume the position of interim executive director during the search process. The camp will undergo a major restructuring, as well. Instead of operating primarily as a summer camp for deaf children, additional programs will be developed and the focus of the camp will be broadened. It will include year-round operations for both children and adults with deafness and hearing loss. A family program is also being considered. To accomplish these goals and programs, the 2006 summer camp will not be held, in order to proceed with an extensive remodeling of the camp and other capital improvements necessary for the property to accommodate the expanded program.
