Welcome to Camp Abilities Long Island’s
(Long Island Sports Camp for Children with Visual Impairments Inc.)
The 2017 Camp Abilities Long Island
will be held July 13th – 16th
at Adelphi University
Our Camp Motto: Believe You Can Achieve!
Camp Abilities is a four day, three night developmental sports camp for children who are visually impaired, blind, or deafblind. The camp is set up to provide a 1:1 instructional situation for each child. Camp Abilities Long Island is held on the campus of Adelphi University in Garden City, NY. All campers and counselors will stay in the dorms overnight.
Our volunteer coaches are pooled from physical education and special education undergraduate and graduate programs across the U.S., and overseas in addition to current professionals in the field. Many specialists that have worked at Camp Abilities are blind themselves, and serve as excellent role models for our children, some of whom have never met or socially interacted with another person who is blind.
