Camp Abilities 2018

Camp Abilities 2018 took place at the campus of the University of Northern Iowa.  Over 20 students who are blind or visually impaired in elementary, middle, and high schools from around the state of Iowa came together for a week long rec and leisure camp.  The focus was on adapting sports so that all students, regardless of vision level, could experience numerous sports and participate in them including: track and field events, football, soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball, bike riding, goalball, beep baseball, amongst others.  It was encouraging to watch students learn, succeed, and like sports they previously did not enjoy.  Although adaptive sports was the focus, the students really enjoyed socializing with friends and sharing like experiences of being blind and visually impaired.
