Since 1917, Lions clubs have offered people the opportunity to give something back to their communities. From involving members in projects as local as cleaning up an area park or as far-reaching as bringing sight to the world's blind, Lions clubs have always embraced those committed to building a brighter future for their community.

Today with more than 46,000 clubs in 193 countries and geographical areas, Lions have expanded their focus to help meet the ever-increasing needs of our global community.

Our programs are continually changing to meet new needs and greater demands, but our mission has never wavered: "We Serve."

Camp Lions prepare to celebrate Diamond Jubilee! 

Camp Lions opened it's doors in the Chicago area sixty years ago in 1957. This award-winning Camp Program is still one of kind, combining both blind/ partially sighted & deaf/hard of hearing youth campers under one banner - inclusion!

Camp Lions for Youth has never been about differences, but about the similarities of campers. They all need inspiration, positive guidance, and enough challenging opportunities to explore their full potentials. Camp Lions has always been about the dream of growing through fun & friendship, and will never stop being so.

Watch us as we celebrate 60 years of youthful excellence in 2017! Camp Lions is free for campers to attend due to the generosity and hard work of our Illinois Lions, Lioness, Leo Clubs. Plus the support of friends of Camp Lions of Illinois for Blind and/or Deaf Youth!
