Blind and low-vision children ages six through twelve are invited to join the NFB of Virginia for a week of hands-on learning and fun alongside friends, June 24-28, 8:00-3:00 p.m., daily*. We ask families to please join us for our Sunday afternoon kick-off party on June 23, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. and our graduation BELL-celebration on Friday, June 28, at 2:00 p.m. During the program, lunch and snacks will be provided for participants. Transportation is not provided except for field trips. Please pay what you can for registration (5 dollars, 50 dollars, 100 dollars). *Please note on Wednesday, June 26 and Thursday, June 27 our schedule will change to 8:00-5:00 p.m. to accommodate our field trips. 

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 Louise Walch.
