Extended in length by popular demand, our summertime teen session is the crown jewel of Enchanted Hills Camp, where the most dynamic and charged bonds occur. Teens get to ride horses, learn woodworking, take riflery, and perform in the Redwood Grove Theater. What’s particularly special about teen session is how most of the Counselors and CITs are blind or visually impaired themselves, and many have attended camp as young teens. Here teens in grades 9 through 12 will experience all the offered youth camp activities and special events, including the STEM track which is built into this year’s teen timeline. Additionally, campers will participate in activities geared toward building leadership abilities and setting goals for the future.
To apply, fill out the application online, or print out and send in a paper form. For more information and to get an application form, visit the camp session website.
Coding and Game Development Weekend
LightHouse for the Blind and Facebook are excited to partner for a weekend of coding and game development at the Enchanted Hills Summer Camp. Campers will have an opportunity to work side-by-side with Facebook software engineers over two days. Together, we will build a web-based choose-your-own-path game. Working in small groups, campers will design the narrative of their game and then code the paths through the narrative. They may embellish the game with mystery, riddles, useful objects and plot twists – whatever the imagination can conjure.
Where: Enchanted Hills Camp
When: Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm both days
