Welcome to the Helen L. Diller Vacation Home for Blind Children

The Helen L. Diller Vacation Home for Blind Children has been providing blind and visually impaired children an all-expense paid week of summer camp since 1972.  Over the course of eight weeks each summer, between mid-June and mid-August, the Home operates a camp that offers many of the campers their first experience of feeling sand in their toes or tasting salt water on their lips.  The campers’ range in age from seven years in age to fifteen years in age and the Home can accommodate twenty campers each week.  We are located in a residential community, two blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, in Avalon, New Jersey.

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.
