About Mark Seven Deaf Foundation and Camp Mark 7
CM7 was established in 1981by Fr. Thomas Coughlin
and members of the Deaf Catholic Community. The
foundation has owned Camp Mark Seven (CM7), located
in New York's Adirondack Mountains near Old Forge.
CM7 is a 7.2-acre summer, recreational, lakefront
camp for deaf and hard-of-hearing children and
youth, where young campers learn to interact with
others in the same age groups and become adept at
swimming, hiking, canoeing, social discourse and
much more. Each summer, CM7 continues to offer an
array of recreational, educational, leadership and
spiritual programs for deaf, hard-of-hearing youth,
children and elders, as well as courses in American
Sign Language, programs for the religious and lay
persons and ElderCamp Week. CM7 became accredited
when it received the prestigious American Camping
Association Award in 1998 for its work and
accredited facility. Everyone of all religious
beliefs are welcome.
