Camp Abilities Michigan provides children and youth with visual impairments an authentic “summer camp” experience, including adapted sports, such as beep baseball and goal ball. The opportunity for them to successfully participate, sorely lacking in individual communities, increases their personal empowerment and improves how they are perceived by others.
Camp Abilities Michigan is affiliated with Wayne State University and operated by volunteers; college students and others studying in the fields of Physical Education, Adapted Physical Education, and Special Education. The Board of Directors consists of hardworking, dedicated and passionate educators from local school systems
They strive to increase awareness through support of local events with hands-on activities, and the distribution of information about visual impairment outdoor activities. By teaching our campers what the CAN do in sports, recreation, and other activities, we foster independence resulting in a healthier lifestyle, better well being, and greater self confidence.
“I’ve had an amazing experience here(camp)…I’m so proud of everything I’ve seen. Everyone I’ve seen has grown and accomplished so much in these short amount of days. I am so grateful for this fantastic experience!”
