Family Network for Deaf Children’s Family Deaf Camp is for parents with Deaf and Hard of Hearing children and Deaf and Hard of Hearing parents with their children (CODAs) that use sign language for all or part of their communication.

Wednesday, July 5th at 1:00 pm to Sunday, July 9th at 11:00 am 


Just relax or dive into everything we offer.

Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre staff and FNDC’s Deaf Youth Today (DYT) staff will be offering family participation programs as well as children and adult programs. There is something for everyone and most of the programs will be interpreted. Some examples of programs include climbing tower, hiking, high ropes course, stand-up paddleboards, beach fun, games, mystery hunts, crafts, kayaking, marine tours (12 passenger boat), campfire stories & skits in ASL.

Be part of a really great camp community.

Family Deaf Camp fee includes meals at the Lodge for Dinner on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and "Grab & Go" Breakfast on Sunday morning. 

All other meals are on your own to plan and prepare.


Your Weekend Gateway...

Bring your tent/s, cooking & camping gear.  Outhouse toilets & showers are available ($1 per 2.5-minute hot shower). Tribune Bay is a BC Provincial Park, therefore motor homes and trailers are greatly discouraged. In situations where there are complex medical needs, this can be worked out. Cabins, Yurts & Cabanas may be booked at an additional fee.

Family Deaf Camp 2023 Rates


Family Deaf Camp Fee

$400.00 for your family for the weekend camp (4 nights).

Family Deaf Camp fee includes camping, some meals and activities. This year due to limited space, we cannot add individuals outside your immediate family. FYI: The regular Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre rate is $425.00 per person, but you pay only $400.00 for your whole FAMILY (parents/guardians and your children).

For families that need additional support (ie personal support workers), this can be worked out with an additional fee of $200.00 by sending an email to DYT.

Family Deaf Camp space is limited. Therefore, registering and paying online will secure your place. A waitlist (with a deposit) will be created.  And, yes, there is always hope on the waitlist!


Financial Support: For families (with a DHH child) who are in need of financial assistance, please contact to be placed on a waitlist.  At this time, we don’t have bursaries available, but if we receive donations, we will let you know.  Priority will be given to families with DHH children attending Family Deaf Camp for the first time.



Cabins, Yurts & Cabanas may be booked at an additional fee of $48.00 per person for the weekend (sharing may be an option in cabins, depending on numbers).
