Your donation will get us one step closer to making the Bowen Island Centre for the Blind and DeafBlind a reality. The centre will allow the Pacific Training Centre for the Blind (PTCB) and the Camp Bowen Society to continue to provide blindness and DeafBlindness skills training and summer independence camps to children, youth, and adults who are blind and DeafBlind from across Canada by eliminating our biggest barrier, the need to rent the dedicated, accessible space necessary for our programming to be effective. We currently fund the bulk of the work we do through grant awards and donations from people just like you.

If you have any questions, require assistance during the donation process, or would like to make alternate arrangements for your donation, please call +1 (844) 692-6936 or contact us using another method of your choice.

Centre Development

Donations to this fund will cover the costs of acquiring land and developing a facility on Bowen Island, British Columbia to be used by the Bowen Island Centre for the Blind and DeafBlind to house a ten-month blindness/DeafBlindness skills training program from September to June and summer independence camps during July and August. The Bowen Island Centre for the Blind and DeafBlind is an initiative of the PTCB and the Camp Bowen Division of COBD. This component has an 8 million dollar budget. Any money raised above and beyond this goal will be put towards the operation of the centre.

This fund is administered by the Camp Bowen Division of the Canadian Organization of the Blind and Deafblind (COBD), a grassroots federal not for profit organization based on Bowen Island, British Columbia.
