To Our Silent Camp Community;

Thank you for voting in the Poll; your overwhelming votes showed us that you would rather postpone camp until next year, than put yourselves, your friends, and your family at risk. Thank you for choosing to keep Silent Camp safe.

On behalf of Rhode Island Silent Camp Board, after much discussion and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Silent Camp to 2021. We are heartbroken and we know you are too. Given the reality of the global pandemic happening, we believe this is the right thing to do, as the health and safety of our campers, staff, and volunteers is our number one priority.

Instead of an in-person camp this year, we are going to look into setting up a Zoom social so everyone can still get together to safely socialize, see friends and to continue learning about Deaf culture, possibly through a series of workshops on Zoom. Once we finalize the planning, we will share it with you.

For those that have already paid for camp this year, there will be an email sent out to give you the option to defer payment to next year, or get a full refund. Please contact us if you have any questions.
