Opportunities Unlimited for the Blind’s mission: building life skills, self-confidence and independence for children and young adults who are blind or have low vision.

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

We are done with the 2016 camping season! We had a great time, and we look forward to another year!

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!
