Camp Pride


 

Camp Pride is a summer camp for youth between the ages of 14 through 21 who are still in high school and are blind or visually impaired. The camp is located in rural New Durham, New Hampshire.

ABC’s Camp Pride is a place where those who are blind or visually impaired can participate in an accessible educational curriculum that will help prepare them for the world of work through exploration of career options and workplace skill development. Participants will improve social skills while participating in recreational and leisure activities. Camp Pride is a place where youth gain confidence while working together with their peers and being mentored by successful blind adults. Most of all it is a place where youth discover endless possibilities. In addition, traditional camp activities offered during the evening provide fun, while teaching independence and increasing confidence, the building blocks for personal success.
