The Rhode Island Silent Camp, Incorporated, is a non-profit organization that was started in July 2002. The vision of its founders was to create an organization that would preserve, enhance, and promote the awareness of Deaf culture. Through various educational activities and outreach programs, their goal has been accomplished. Today, we are an Educational Outreach Program designed for the introduction, immersion, and education of the hearing community regarding the world of the Deaf, its language, and its culture.
Campers must be 18 or older and know at least some sign language. The weekend costs $80 and includes meals and a t-shirt. This is non-refundable; however, payments may be credited towards future events. You are responsible for your own tent and other camping needs. There are multiple bathrooms and one shower available.
