Our partner with children with physical challenges…
The Bob Rumball Camp of the Deaf is located in Parry Sound, Ontario. The camp was established in 1960, giving life to Rev. Bob Rumball’s vision of a facility in the heart of Ontario where a deaf child could enjoy everything that a summer camp could offer, but in an environment without communication barriers. The camp began as just three farmhouses, a barn for the boys to sleep in and a chicken coop that served as the kitchen and girls dorm. Today, the camp can house over 200 guests in year round dormitories, cottages and special need guest rooms. The Don Durno Lodge has a full-sized gym, assembly hall, and dining room. The Ontario Camp of the Deaf is a place of opportunity for deaf, hard of hearing and multiple handicapped young people.
The Bob Rumball Centre for the Deaf is a multi-purpose, multi-program facility that functions both as a community centre for the Deaf, and as a provider of services to the Deaf.
Located on Bayview north of Lawrence, the Centre operates a wide variety of programs, as well as offering a home for the activities and offices of Deaf groups and associations. Several of the programs are residential in nature, with apartments on site, and others are day programs.
