​2017 Upcoming Events
Registration is now open for our Summer Camps.  Check them out.

Adventure Camp H20
When: July 9-15
Where: Camp Dogwood, Sherrills Ford, NC
Who: Rising 7-12th graders who are blind or visually impaired
What:  An overnight water sports camp for kids who are ready to dip their toes (and more) into the water.  We'll swim, row, kayak, water-ski, and splash around from our home base on the shores of Lake Norman, and throw in a trip to the National Whitewater Center in Charlotte for good measure.  Novices are welcome, and life jackets are plentiful.  All that's required is a willingness to try new things and get wet.  We'll have evening activities, too.
Cost:  Free


Adventure Camp
When:  July 23-27
Where:  Nantahala Outdoor Center, Bryson City, NC
Who:  Rising 7-12th graders who are blind or have a significant visual impairment
What:  Adventure Camp is for teens who are ready to step outside their comfort zone and hit the trail.  We plan to hike, raft, climb, swim, and zip in and around the Nantahala Gorge in western North Carolina.  We'll stay in bunkhouses at the Nantahala Outdoor Center base camp.
Cost:  Free, with one-time $50 registration fee


Family Retreat
We are proud to announce our first Family Retreat!
When:  July 13-15
Where:  Camp Dogwood, Sherrills Ford, NC
Who:  Kids of all ages who are blind and visually impaired, and their families
What:  This family weekend will overlap with the last 3 days of Adventure camp H2O above.  Kids of all ages are invited, along with their families.  We'll provide adaptive water sports instruction for the kids (blind and sighted), as well as workshops and activities for parents.  Families will stay together in the Camp Dogwood dormitories, and siblings are invited as well.
