Deaf students are mixed in with other campers and are able to participate with help of special cameras and sign language interpreters.

Nick Catalono is a student at the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. He's also a camp counselor at Deaf Space Camp.

"It gives our students really the opportunity to work with hearing kids and get exposed to the sciences and the great opportunities that NASA and Space Camp provide," Catalano said.

Students will have graduation from the program tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

This is Deaf Space Camp's 32nd year.
