The Camp Bowen Society for the independence of the Blind and Deafblind offers independent living skills training to blind individuals.
We are currently only accepting students from the British Columbia Metro Vancouver area, though we are working hard to expand capacity. If you are outside of the Metro Vancouver area, see below for details on our planned expansion project.
If you are interested in receiving training, please contact us and we can set up an assessment to review your training needs.
We are currently working at a limited capacity. To expand capacity, we are working on the Camp Bowen Training and Recreation Centre Project. This project’s goal is to create a facility on Bowen Island to house a nine month live-in independent living skills training program. It would also serve as the base for an in-home support program for program alumni. For the remaining three months of the year, the centre would become the home of Camp Bowen’s child, youth, and adult camps, with vacancies being filled by blind, Deafblind, and local community groups.
