Kansas Lions Foundation - Serving Community & Youth

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Camp

For over 10 years, the Lions of Kansas have given deaf and hard of hearing children the opportunity to attend an overnight summer camp designed especially for them.

Each year, deaf and hard of hearing high school age students from across Kansas gather at Rock Springs Camp near Junction City for a week of excitement and activities. They have the exclusive use of Wa Shun Ga campsite, which includes its own dining hall and swimming pool, with access to all other activities of Rock Springs Camp.

This camp gives these students an opportunity to do things they would not get to do otherwise, such as horseback riding, canoeing and archery. There also is an emphasis on Leadership and Environmental Education conducted during the week.

A benefit of this camp is to bring these students from across Kansas together to enjoy a week of fun and excitement that they do not have the opportunity to do back home.  It will fill your heart with joy to observe students when they leave the camp. There is crying, hugging, and exchanging of addresses among friends they have made for life!  Thanks to the Lions of Kansas for giving them this unique experience, which they will remember for a lifetime.
