Mississippi Lions Deaf Camp offers a weekend of recreational activities that promote good health, positive attitudes, and friendships that last a lifetime. We strive to provide our campers with an environment that not only offers fun, positive recreational activities for the body and mind, but memories that will last forever. We provide Deaf and Hard of Hearing children, from across the State of Mississippi, the opportunity to interact with their peers through these recreational activities.
Children, ages 5-14, who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing or who have parents or siblings who are Deaf or Hard of hearing are eligible to participate.
Mississippi Lions accepts applications regardless of race, color, religion, sex or national origin for participation.
