Camp Abilities Brockport
Camp Abilities Brockport is a one-week developmental sports camp for children and teens who are blind, visually impaired, and deafblind. Brockport is home to the first ever Camp Abilities and its creator Dr. Lauren Lieberman. The camp is set up to provide a one-on-one instructional situation for each person, which is often on the contrary to other camps designed for people with vision and hearing disabilities.
The camp also provides us with a unique opportunity to conduct research into ways to improve the lives of people with visual impairments. In the communal setting of camp, we are able to observe and test new methods that have gone on to make marked differences in campers' quality of life and added to the body of knowledge in the field.
Camp Abilities is directed by Dr. Lauren Lieberman, Alex Stribing (Assistant Director), and graduate assistants Rachel Sherman, Kristi Lane, Jasmine Bradwell, and Matthew Farwell. For more information, please see the Camp Abilities Staff page.
