90th Anniversary 1925 - 2015

Located in Suffolk County, Long Island, Cleary Deaf Child Center, Inc. had its beginning in 1925 when Rosemary Cleary opened Camp Peter Pan, the first summer camp for the Deaf in the United States. In honor of the long history of love and service Cleary School has offered to children, families and the Long Island community join us as we honor 90 years of history, love and service.

Throughout 2015 Cleary School launched a social media campaign celebrating Cleary School’s history sharing photos, marketing ads, and alumni videos. At the onset of the 2015-2016 school year, we plan to host a 90th Anniversary celebration, the below outlines the celebration festivities. 

Efforts will be made to raise funds contributing towards the purchase of an outdoor LED sign, raising a community presence while also notifying the community of Cleary School activities.
