The Maryland School for the Blind (MSB) will be hosting Camp Abilities Maryland, a developmental sports and recreation camp for children and youth ages 9-17 with visual impairments, from August 4-7.
The purpose of the program is to empower campers with visual impairments to be physically active, improve their health and well-being and to gain confidence. The camp teaches students what they CAN do in the area of sports, recreation and physical activity.
Camp Abilities helps students to develop not only physical fitness skills but also social skills by offering a traditional summer camp experience while providing instructional development in the areas of adapted sports. Students will have the opportunity to partake in a variety of different sports and activities, ranging from beep baseball to Zumba.
The camp is in need of volunteers to help with the event. Volunteers will be responsible for helping students perform various activities and basic daily functions. Volunteer applications will be accepted through July 15 and can be found at www.campabilitiesmaryland.com.
