Oklahomans Without Limits Camp opens doors for visually impaired
NewView Oklahoma is hosting a summer camp for children who are blind or visually impaired.
Blind and visually impaired children are swimming, fencing, rock climbing and experiencing all kinds of other sports this week as part of a summer camp organized by NewView Oklahoma.
More than 60 children from throughout the state are participating in the Oklahomans Without Limits Camp. Children who have trouble seeing are partnered with a sighted partner for the week.
“We want blind and visually impaired kids in Oklahoma to know that there are no limits,” said Lauren White, president and CEO of NewView, in a statement. “You cannot let visual impairment define what you can or cannot do. With the right attitude, anything is possible.”
This is the 12th year that NewView Oklahoma, formerly the Oklahoma League for the Blind, has hosted the summer camp. Last year's camp focused on the arts.
