A Deaf Ministry Retreat Weekend staying at the Wilson Lodge complex in Kananaskis Park, and here up a mini-mountain having a good look around.
Bruce Buzzel, Camp Hope presenter, with George Stothart, signing instructor, at the abandoned “Train Tunnels” near Hope- where most Deaf went on Sabbath PM. You can see two tunnels in the background – a very nice place on a hot day!
Sign Singing at the main camp meeting auditorium at the end of the Signing/Deaf Ministry class week. Each day the signing class would practice a song. At the evening meeting on Thursday night, the class would sign a song while Darlene Reimche voice sang the song.
HOPE CAMP MEETINGS:
At the end of the Deaf Camp Meeting, we would transition into a Signing Class with Alberta Blake &/or George Stothart teaching. The last weekend of the regular hearing camp meeting we would work to provide interpreting for the few Deaf who might still be around to attend. Here Vicki Manzuik, who used to work much with deaf people in the Fraser Valley, is helping with interpreting for Nancy Brown.
