These activities include surfing, wake boarding, inner tubing, go-kart racing, horse-back riding, white water rafting, and backpacking in the summer. In the winter our activities include downhill skiing/snowboarding, tubing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and rock climbing. Our camp last one week and the dates are available on our website, xmocamps.org These camps are provided at no cost to the athlete.

One of our summer camps includes surfing, wake boarding, water skiing, tubing, jet skiing and getting a full California experience. Another camp exclusively for the athletes that are capable includes summiting and backpacking to the top Mt. Whitney. XMO is continually growing and expanding, adding new and unique opportunities for the visually impaired.
