A summer camp for children who are visually impaired, blind and deaf-blind started again on Sunday.
Camp Abilities Brockport, a one week sports camp for children with visual impairments, kicked off its 19th year on Sunday. This year, campers will get to ride bikes and horses, play basketball and run track along with a variety of other sports activities.
Lauren Lieberman, founder of Camp Abilities, says too many children with visual impairments are left out of physical activities.
“A lot of people don’t know what physical activities to do with kids with visual impairments, so the camp’s main purpose is to empower the kids in sports and physical education, recreation and physical activity,” said Lieberman.
This year’s camp runs until July 5.
