The program is filled with educational and recreational activities to allow blind and visually impaired youth to adjust to blindness while learning and having time for fun. Often blind and visually impaired young ones are kept out away from activities that sighted children are doing because of fear for the children’s safety. Blind and visually impaired children are capable of such activities but are often isolated from them. This program will offer many opportunities for blind and visually impaired young adults to be creative, independent, and have fun.
Camp sight will provide adjustment to blindness support and instruction by offering the young adults a variety of learning experiences and social experiences. Camp Sight is a program for blind and visually impaired youth age 8-21. The children will learn a multitude of life skills at camp including socialization skills, arts and theater enrichment, food preparation, cooking and eating skills, cleaning techniques, personal hygiene and health, access technology, communication skills, conflict resolution, and orientation and mobility. The program has a cost of $1000 per child. The program must provide all of the activities, lunch, snacks, and transportation to and from Camp Sight each day.
