Blind and low-vision children ages six through twelve are invited to join the NFB of Ohio for a week of hands-on learning and fun alongside friends, June 16-21. This is a residential program. We ask families to please join us for our Sunday afternoon kick-off party on June 16, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. and our graduation BELL-celebration on Friday, June 21, at 2:00 p.m. All meals will be provided. Transportation is not provided except for field trips. Registration is 100 dollars per student. Payment can be made either by check or Zelle. Checks can be made payable to the NFB of Ohio and mailed to 1916 15th Street SW, Akron, OH 44314. Zelle payments can be sent to [email protected].

Our theme for this year's camp is, "I Can Lead!" Children love getting to know other blind and low-vision children as they learn Braille and other non-visual skills through games, crafts, interactive lessons, and field trips! They will learn from highly qualified teachers and confident blind adult role models. Your child is sure to come home with stronger skills, a network of new friends, and greater confidence to propel them through the next school year. For more information or additional questions please contact Richard Payne.
