Camp Abilities

Camp Abilities is a developmental sports camp for children and teens who are blind, visually impaired, and deafblind. Watch our video to hear about the story of two children with visual impairments who grew up together at an orphanage in China and were reunited for the first time in several years at Camp Abilities Brockport.
