Camp Lions prepare to celebrate
Diamond Jubilee!

Camp Lions opened it's doors in the Chicago area sixty years ago in 1957. This award-winning Camp Program is still one of kind, combining both blind/ partially sighted & deaf/hard of hearing youth campers under one banner - inclusion!

Camp Lions for Youth has never been about differences, but about the similarities of campers. They all need inspiration, positive guidance, and enough challenging opportunities to explore their full potentials. Camp Lions has always been about the dream of growing through fun & friendship, and will never stop being so.

Watch us as we celebrate 60 years of youthful excellence in 2017! Camp Lions is free for campers to attend due to the generosity and hard work of our Illinois Lions, Lioness, Leo Clubs. Plus the support of friends of Camp Lions of Illinois for Blind and/or Deaf Youth!

Remember when the Mobile Screening Units were in storage by November 1st every year? Well not any more. With the updated units and there dependability in early winter weather they are now out doing scheduled screenings into the last week of November! The demand is at an increase as so many people are being pressed economically and need our services more than ever to maintain their vision & hearing health and needed equipment for daily living, work and school.


Addressing the Lions Convention in 1925,
