Visually Impaired and Blind Youth Sessions
Bear Lake Camp offers a camp program for blind and visually impaired youth. The program focuses on having fun while developing self concepts, relationship learning, independence with life skills and acquiring outdoor skills. Older campers have the option to participate in leadership development activities. The leadership development program runs through two summers with elevated experience and responsibilities in the 2nd year. Participants in the leadership development program must have been a camper for the regular Blind and Visually Impaired Youth Camp. The program is financially supported by Lions, Lioness and Leo clubs throughout Michigan. There is a $25.00 registration fee.
