This summer, Christian Record Services (www.ChristianRecord.org) provided over 100 separate summer camp experiences for children and adults who are blind or experiencing vision loss. Since 1967, over 50,000 campers have experienced camps through National Camps for Blind Children, a program of Christian Record Services.
This summer, campers enjoyed a plethora of indoor and outdoor activities at summer camps in Minnesota, Maine, Indiana, Oklahoma, California and Washington. An additional camp will be hosted in Florida in September. Activities included horseback riding, archery, water skiing, crafts, cooking and even a zip line over the lake.
One of the campers this summer shared this about his camp experience, “It means so much to all of us and gives us all a chance to feel normal.”
Each camp is scheduled at a well-equipped site, chosen especially for the standard of excellence and geographical location. Committed staff and counselors are trained to meet the needs of legally blind campers who are between the ages of nine and 65.
