Norwich Lions travel to Cabot Vermont to spruce up the Lions Club Green Mountain Camp

Nine members of the Norwich Lions club escaped the den thinking that they would take a joy ride to Cabot Vermont and enjoy a beautiful day at camp. Little did they know, they were selected to help clear trails, cut and stack wood, collect brush for the burn pile, paint decks, and set up newly purchased Adirondack chairs.  All this was done by a great team of Lions from throughout the state of Vermont to prepare the Green Mountain Lions camp for the 2018 summer events.
Information on the Green Mountain Lions camp is below

Event Navigation

The Green Mountain Lions Camp (formally Austine Green Mountain Lions Camp) is back and better than ever!  Our camp has brought together Deaf and Hard of Hearing kids and teens from all over New England and beyond for over 30 years.  Our beautiful new location is in Cabot, VT.  The new campus has hiking trails, fields to play on, a barn for indoor activities, craft cabin and waterfront swimming and boating!  Memories are made and forever friendships formed in an environment of total communication access.  The primary language used at camp is American Sign Language (ASL) and we guide and encourage new signers to practice and use ASL to foster an environment of access and inclusion.
