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.

Each week at camp has a different theme.
Previous themes have included: Olympics, Old West, and Medieval Times.
Activities and group games use these themes as a guide line.
 
Many of the Camp activities are based around our waterfront. Every camper has an opportunity to canoe, kayak, tower jump, tarzan rope, water ski, wake board or go tubing.
 
Other activities include; arts and crafts, organized team games, and wilderness adventure activities.
 
Once a week, campers have the opportunity to participate in Motocamp. Here, they can choose to ride an ATV or a small motorcycle.
 
Our Tuck Shop is a small, site-run booth where campers can get sodas, candies and other treats not part of the camp’s meal plan. The Tuck Shop is open for 30 minutes per day and is included in the camp fee. Campers do not need to bring any money or snacks with them.
 
Power Hour is our evening program that consists of skits, singing, silly games, and an inspirational message.
