Come be apart of the fun!

Our Club's mission is to improve the lives of the visually impaired and our local community members,
with a special emphasis on outdoor recreation and community serivce.

Ever since Helen Keller inspired the Lions Club International to champion the cause of vision impairment in 1925, Lions Clubs all over the world have served and advocated for the blind and visually impaired. Nearly a century later, this long-standing mission continues unhindered.

Blind Campers

The Blind Campers program is one of the club’s flagship programs organized and managed by club members. 

During the summer, visually impaired students and their families are invited to spend a few days experiencing the many recreation options the Deep Creek Lake area has to offer. 

Club members and volunteers set up tents for the students at The Lions Club Park on Bumble Bee Road.  Days are typically spent tubing and kayaking on the lake, four wheeling on local trails, with evening barbecues and marshmallow roasting by the fire.

Students are also challenged with an art project.  Previously completed creations are currently displayed at the park. Local attractions also donate their facilities to allow the students to experience the fun of the mountain coaster, bumper cars and go-carts.
