The Association of Blind Citizens (ABC) is sponsoring a weekend in New Hampshire for legally blind youth between the ages of 12-16. ABC is a not for profit, all volunteer organization that has been providing programs and services for the blind and visually impaired community for the past 18 years. This program is an outgrowth of our experience in operating camps for blind children since 2007. Participants will spend the weekend at a ski lodge where they will have the chance to experience the New Hampshire White Mountain region.
Activities will include tubing, skiing, snowshoeing, and an indoor pool for swimming. This will be a weekend of fun activities and a chance to meet new friends. The program will take place the weekend of February 8-10, 2019. We will pick up attendees in Boston. If you are a teacher of the visually impaired or an orientation and mobility instructor, please inform your students’ parents or guardian about this opportunity.
If you are the parent of a blind child, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 781-961-1023, if your child is interested. We will provide registration materials at that time. This opportunity is being offered at no charge to participants, but space is limited. The registration deadline is January 15, 2019.
