IRS tax lien against Camp Aspen for the Deaf in Colorado was a major factor in its decision to shut down. Ryan Commerson hopes it will be temporarily so they can deal with various issues confronting them, such as state regulations, cabin rentals, parents non-payments, staff turnovers and forest fires, etc.
It's tough operating a high adventure camp that challenge generations of Deaf children. It'll take time to rethink its mission, resolve problems and return stronger than ever. Deaf Anthology, without doubts, is confidence that its leadership will take the camp to the next level, with a workable approach. There will be stumbling blocks along the way, and we will overcome them, it's now time that the Deaf community step in to help, and lining up corporations and foundations support its recovery to get back on the beaten trails.
