Adventure Camp

Adventure Camps

Adventure Camp provides a summer camp experience to children with vision impairments.

2021 Adventure Camps

July 10-17 (ages 19-24); July 11-17 (ages 15-18);
July 12-17 (ages 11-14); July 15-17 (ages 6-10)

Camps introduce youth to a variety of traditional outdoor camp experiences, but specifically focus on particular needs and considerations for youth with vision impairment. Campers are taught outdoor and recreational skills to complement their knowledge of the natural world. Younger campers have the opportunity to practice functional, social, mobility and independent living skills, while forming friendships and having fun! Older campers experience cookouts, creative arts, archery, hiking, swimming, a ropes course, horseback riding, zip-lining and Beep Baseball training. Campers learn fundamental skills that help them learn, play and grow in a camp atmosphere. Camp helps youth learn independence and social skills to develop into successful teenagers and helps older youth become successful adults.


Counselor in Training Program

Youth from ages 14 and older can be enrolled into a complementary C.I.T. Program (Counselors in Training). This unique program is designed to enhance interpersonal and communication skills while fostering independence and self-advocacy. All CIT’s will be matched with a mentor who has successfully completed CIT the previous year. Together they will work to come up with an activity or program to teach the rest of the campers the final day of Adventure Camp.
