Deaf Camp is a national outdoor pursuits initiative for deaf children, organised and led by Deaf volunteers.
In August 2009 a two weeks camp was co-ordinated with the first week in partnership with the NDCS for 8-12 year olds and the second week – Deaf Teen Camp – for 13-15 year olds.
At the recent trustees’ meeting it was decided for the organisation to wind down to enable the charity to end on a high, with all long-serving volunteers moving on to pastures new.
We would like to thank all these who have contributed to the work of the charity, as well as funders; the National Deaf Children’s Society Jack Ashley Millennium Awards, Awards for All, the Big Lottery Fund, Four Acres Trust and the Hedley Foundation.
A total of 300 children have attended the camp weeks, and 126 volunteers have been involved in making this happen. A big thank you to all these volunteers – we couldn’t have done it without you!
We have a blog full of photos and articles relating to the camp weeks, and this blog will continue until August 2010 – check it out to learn more about the work we did – www.deafcamp.org.uk
Yours in camping
