Hello Everyone,

Summer is right around the corner and that means it is almost time for our virtual talent show. We are excited to share with you a sneak peak of the lineup for the A Salute to Summer virtual talent show being put on by the Camp Bowen Division of the Canadian Organization of the Blind and Deafblind and the Pacific Training Centre for the Blind. All proceeds from ticket sales from this talent show, which features blind, Deafblind, and low vision performers, will go towards the Bowen Island Recreation, Training and Meeting Centre project, our joint initiative to create a space for blindness/Deafblindness skills training and summer independence Camps.

If you haven’t yet bought tickets, it isn’t too late! You can buy them through the events page on our website.
