Support of the Home is provided by volunteerism, foundation grants, general donations and community organizations. It costs approximately $1,500 to sponsor one camper for a one-week vacation at the Home. Key benefactors include Tim Kerr Charities, Inc., the Avalon Lions Club, and The William G. and Helen C. Hoffman foundation. The Home is a NJ Lions International District 16C supported project. Together, our benefactors make it possible for each camper to enjoy a summer vacation at no cost to their families.
The late William and Helen Diller of Stone Harbor purchased the property and the Home, a former boarding house in 1970 and the first year of camp took place in 1972. Since its first summer of operation, nearly 7,500 blind and visually impaired children have enjoyed an opportunity to experience summer camp and make lifelong friendships and memories.
