Wilderness Camp for Deaf Children is a nonprofit public benefit 501 (c)3 corporation founded in 1980. A camp in the northern part of the state is leased while Camp Teresita Pines near Wrightwood in Southern California is owned by Wilderness Camp and operated by a Foundation of fellow Lions.
 
The camps are staffed by dedicated people highly proficient in sign language and camping skills. The children are taught about nature, outdoor living skills and recreation.
 
Through these activities, the camp experience becomes a place to assist the camper build self esteem and confidence. Leader-ship development is also offered to experienced campers who volunteer as Counselors in Training.
