The Camp of the Deaf is located in Parry Sound and was founded in 1960 as a result of Reverend Rumball’s desire to create a place where a Deaf child could enjoy a summer camp experience, develop their leadership and outdoor skills, and take a vacation from feeling ‘different’ or ‘special’. Here, staff and volunteers are trained in American Sign Language so there are no communication barriers.
With the support of service clubs and individuals we are able to subsidize up to 85% campers, which is crucial as so many of our campers come from disadvantaged backgrounds with families that would otherwise be unable to afford registration fees. For more information, please see our
