Eleanor Foshee and Pat Ford established Camp Juliena in 1992 as a way to promote meaningful social interaction among deaf and hard-of-hearing children. While supportive of mainstream education for students with hearing loss, both women felt strongly about giving these students the opportunity to socialize exclusively with their deaf and hard-of-hearing peers.

When it was founded, Camp Juliena became the first summer program in Georgia for deaf and hard-of-hearing children. Today, Camp Juliena continues to inspire hundreds of campers each year with positive deaf and hard-of-hearing role models (counselors) and equip them with valuable leadership, communication and social skills.
