Alphapointe’s Technology Camp is a week-long day camp experience for middle and high school students with vision impairments.
A High Tech Experience
Technologies that improve internet navigation and provide social networking knowledge and safety Campers will train with Jaws or ZoomText software depending on the camper’s visual needs. Campers will also learn to utilize various technologies that impact academic development, advance their internet navigation skills, develop social networking knowledge, and establish internet safety and security awareness. Campers will also have the opportunity to work with a variety of mentors who have successfully utilized technology in their chosen careers as professionals with vision loss.
Technology for the Future
Technology Camp Details
For our 2021 camp, we introduced Code Jumper! Code Jumper allows someone that is blind or visually impaired to learn computer coding and programming regardless of preexisting coding skills. Campers participated in small groups to learn basic coding and programming concepts. This educational device helps bridge the skill gap for someone who is blind or visually impaired and opens up the world of coding and fun for every camper.
Interested in volunteering at Technology Camp? Volunteers provide children with vision loss opportunities to use imagination and creativity in a fun and casual learning environment. Volunteers are a critical partner with helping support our Youth Services programs.
Stay tuned for 2022 camp dates!
