“Sleeping in tents this summer was awesome! It was my first time sleeping in tent. Thanks OUB for all you do!” Sydney, age 12

OUB Summer Camps are all about fun and education, where kids learn new skills in a supportive, encouraging environment that will help them become more independent, and have fun doing many traditional camp activities, such as cooking over a campfire, swimming and playing all sorts of games!

Parent Education is an important part of our work. Please view this great video from the National Association of Parents of Children with Visual Impairments (NAPVI).
