Summer Camp for Children who are Blind & Visually Impaired, Open to Sighted Children
For the first time since Clovernook Center’s summer camps began, they are being opened to the sighted siblings of children who are blind and visually impaired. Until this point camps have only been open to children who are blind and visually impaired. The camps have focused on teaching valuable skills for gaining independence and self-sufficiency, while also building confidence. While the children who are blind and visually impaired will still learn many of the same things, they will do so beside their sighted counter parts, in an effort to build an inclusive community and remove segregation. This is a move that Clovernook Center hopes will bridge the gap that has long existed. Campers –blind or sighted – will participate in arts & crafts, community excursions, technology classes, as well as activities of daily living. This year camp will include trips to Kings Island, the swimming pool, rock climbing and other exciting activities. The itinerary also includes touring Channel 12, and Findlay market! Summer Camp will run for 6 weeks this summer: 3 weeks (June 8-12, 15-19, 22-26) will be open to campers ages 13-22; and 3 weeks (July 6-10, 13-17, 20-24) will be open to campers ages 8-12. Youth are encourage to come for as many or as few weeks as they like. For more information please call Clovernook Center’s Recreation Specialist, Diana Fatora at 513-728-6224.
