The Bob Rumball Camp of the Deaf
The Bob Rumball Camp of the Deaf is a place of opportunity for Deaf, hard of hearing and multiply challenged young people. The Camp functions as an inclusive environment where a Deaf child can enjoy everything that a summer camp can offer, but in an environment without any communication barriers. The Bob Rumball Camp of the Deaf is not an extra in the life of a Deaf child or Deaf adult with special needs. It is about changing lives, promoting self esteem and providing opportunities. It is about creating memories that last a life time.
Facilities  
The Bob Rumball Camp of the Deaf is located around two private lakes near Parry Sound, Ontario. Here, campers can enjoy, water skiing, kayaking, and canoeing without the fear of other boaters. Campers can challenge our 25 or 33 foot dive tower or play "Tarzan" on the rope swing.
 
The property also includes ports fields and hiking trails where traditional camp activities such as baseball, soccer, hiking and campfires are all waiting to be enjoyed. The camp’s main indoor space, the Don Durno Lodge, has a full size gym, assembly hall with performance stage, dining area and sleeping areas. Overall, the camp can accommodate over 200 guests in dormitories, cottages and special need guest rooms.

A year-round facility, the Camp also offers a wide variety of winter activities. We are minutes from the provincial snowmobile trail system and we offer tobogganing, inner tubing, and ice-skating.
