Kids Summer Camp

15 – 19 January 2018

Kids Summer Camp offers up to 20 children from all over New Zealand a chance to try new activities and make some lasting friendships. Blind Foundation staff that specialize in child development, sport and recreation activities and social development will be making sure everyone has the best time possible. Volunteers that were once children on camp themselves act as role models ensuring everything runs smoothly.

Who can attend?

Blind Foundation members aged 8 – 14 years that are independent in self-care and mobility. Children must be able to follow verbal instructions and add to social situations.

What can you expect?

A fun packed week, with plenty of opportunities to try new sports and camp activities. Some of these could include goalball, blind soccer, swimming, tandem-biking, kayaking, high ropes and waterslide.
Kids will stay in cabin style bunk rooms, have plenty of good food, evening performances and dress-ups.

How much?

$200 or 3 days ‘Carer Support’ – If using carer support, please return a signed but not dated form.
