Summer Sports Camp 2017 : July 10-14th


 

What is Summer Sports Camp?

The OBSA Summer Sports Camp is a fun-filled overnight camp for campers with a visual impairment.

During the 5 days and 4 nights, campers participate in numerous sports and games led by trained counselors, coaches, and sometimes even Paralympic athletes! Sports can include swimming, wrestling, tandem-cycling, goalball, judo, track and field, powerlifting, bowling, and soccer to name a few. Campers are carefully instructed in each sport to help properly develop their skills and enjoy every activity to its fullest.

Although sports are the primary focus of the camp, campers will be able to participate in other activities as well. There is free time available for the campers to socialize and play in a very supportive environment in addition to a camp fire night!

All campers will sleep in dorm rooms and will have all meals and snacks provided. There will be staff with the campers at all times as well as a nurse on site for the duration of the camp.
