The mission of California Lions Camp is to measure up to the Lion Clubs motto, "We Serve". Our organization is committed to providing deaf and hearing impaired children and their siblings of California and Nevada a safe haven to experience at California Lions Camp what many individuals take for granted. The California Lions Camp is a 501C3 nonprofit that depends on donations to fulfill our mission.

Donations help us maintain and make improvements to our camp and provide scholarships for those who cannot afford to pay. With your support we can continue our mission and help even more children have an amazing camp experience. Please consider donating today, Thank you!
