Opportunities Unlimited for the Blind was created for the exact purpose that is its name. To create and foster unlimited opportunities for blind and partially sighted people throughout Michigan and the world. This organization, comprised mainly of blind adults who have a passion for blind youth, was created in 1994. As the presence of the Michigan School for the Blind began to greatly diminish it became apparent that additional mentoring, leadership and education were vital to ensure that the blind youth of today would grow into successful competent blind adults.
The camp will run six weeks with anticipated enrollment of one hundred fifty children this year. Staff training will include water safety instruction, first aid, OSHA standards, disaster drills, staff responsibilities, blind awareness, team building, and individual encouragement to each camper. Scholarships will be available for low income campers to attend free.
