SEE Camp Abilities H20 is an overnight water sports camp for kids who are blind or visually impaired, and who are ready to dip their toes (and more) in the water. We'll swim, row, kayak, fish, 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 lifejackets plentiful: all that's required is a willingness to try new things and get wet. We'll have evening activities too.
Camp instructors include certified Teachers for the Visually Impaired and Orientation & Mobility Specialists, along with Camp Dogwood's summer staff and a few favorite counselors from our SEE programs.
Who: Camp is open to rising 8-12th graders who are blind or visually impaired and are active and have age-appropriate independent living skills.
Cost: FREE. SEE Camp Abilities H2O is supported by IFB Solutions, and is FREE of charge for all students. Space is limited for the 2019 camp.
