Colorado Center for the Blind
Take Charge with Confidence and Self-Reliance

Announcing Dates for the 2017 CONFIDENCE CAMP FOR KIDS

Come join us for our Elementary Summer day Program!

June 5 through June 23
 

9:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday
 

For ages 5-11
Once again, The Colorado Center for the Blind is sponsoring our interactive, three week program for blind and visually impaired children ages five through eleven.

The highly qualified staff, including two certified TVIs, will work with students in a variety of age appropriate areas such as cane skills, daily living skills, Braille and beginning technology. Students will prepare lunch each day and focus on household activities like making beds, vacuuming, washing dishes, sweeping, etc.

Several experienced and energetic blind role models will be paired with students as we believe that positive blind role modeling teaches success.

Not only will the students work on building their skills but, even more importantly, they will gain confidence in themselves by participating in a wide range of activities. Some of these activities will include a science fair, riding the light rail to parks and recreation centers, swimming, eating lunch at a restaurant and many more.

Students cap off this experience by participating in a unique and fun performance that friends and families can attend. The skills and confidence they gain from this experience will be exciting.

The fee of $100 covers all 3 weeks and all activities. We are grateful to our many grantors and donors who make Confidence Camp possible each year.

All students will use a long white cane during the program, and will also have a number of opportunities to test their skills using sleep shades.

Call early to reserve a spot or email/ fax your application soon. Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received.
