Youth and Teen Sessions at Enchanted Hills Camp
We still have room for young blind and visually impaired campers in our Youth and Teen sessions. This summer we’ll offer the most loved traditional camp activities, such as hiking, swimming, boating, nature programs, arts and crafts and more. Campers will also have the have the chance to participate in some newly designed team building and low rope activities taught by a specialized instructor hired specifically to run the program. And for the first time we now have an outdoor stage to host musical performances, talent shows and presentations. The newly designed Redwood Theatre is not to be missed.
Sign up online or for a hard copy of the application, please contact Taccarra Burrell at email@example.com.
Do You Want to Get Serious About Your Music? Take it to the Next Level at Intensive Blind Music Academy at Enchanted Hills this August
Extended Deadline – Sign Up by June 30
Enchanted Hills Camp in Napa is offering a brand new National Music Academy for blind and visually impaired musicians. The Academy is open to blind musicians ages 14 to 25. The session is led by Dancing Dots founder Bill McCann. If you are a serious blind musician or are thinking of entering the profession, this academy will introduce you to new ways you can write down your own music, read the works of others, and gain the capacity necessary to compete for and win employment in the music field. Session runs from August 3 through August 9, 2014.

This place has provided an amazing way for my daughter to meet & interact with other children with visual impairments. It has given her the type of independence she needs.

Every year my grandson has tried something new. He feels so free here. It was a wonderful grandma/grandson time.

My 17 year old son has been a part of the LightHouse, specifically Enchanted Hills Camp since he was 7. The week he spends every year at camp is typically the highlight of his year. Last year he was able to be a Counselor in Training, being there to support and guide the young campers who come to experience EHC for the first time. Can’t thank LightHouse enough for all the wonderful work they do in helping Jack grow into an independent young man, ready to take on the world and itching to get out on his own. For Jack it’s about learning advocacy – making sure he has the skills to make it on his own. And LightHouse is a large reason why he’s grown into the incredible man he is today. Thanks guys.

Calling all Coffee and Hot Chocolate Drinking Campers
Enchanted Hills needs your mugs. Every year we ask campers to bring a mug with them to donate to camp. We get a wonderful variety of mugs that we use all summer, but they break and disappear by the end of the season and we always need more. So thank you in advance for your contribution to the Enchanted Hills mug supply.
