Our programs for kids with vision loss are designed to empower them to function independently as adults. We hope to introduce additional programs in the future.
Camp I CAN! Summer Program
- Our Camp I CAN! summer program gives kids ages 7-13 with visual impairments opportunities to enjoy new experiences, develop new skills, and make a difference in their communities.
- The two-week day program typically is held in July and features several hands-on activities and fun trips to destinations in and around our service area.
- All kids must have a visual acuity of 20/70 or worse with best correction to be eligible. Appropriate accommodations also are made with respect to other disabilities.
- Campers also participate in a community service project, from which they learn that their impairments cannot prevent them from making an impact.
- Previous community service projects have benefited Animals In Distress, Valley Youth House, Fellowship Manor in Whitehall, PA, and the Good Shepherd Pediatric Rehabilitation program.
