During Helen Keller DeafBlind Awareness week.

The DeafBlind Camp of Texas is a local nonprofit organized by DeafBlind adults and a few of their friends and family. The mission is to provide a safe, fun, barrier-free place for adults who are DeafBlind. The camp runs on donations. Everyone involved in the camp is a volunteer including the Support Service Providers (SSPs), which serve as the eyes and ears for the DeafBlind campers. We hope that you will join us for a fun day of golf with friends and family to support the DeafBlind Camp of Texas.
