This summer was an incredibly busy one at Enchanted Hills Camp and Retreat — in fact, there was hardly a day when a new group wasn’t coming or going, enjoying the natural beauty of our Napa enclave, or putting in real elbow grease to make improvements to our storied Mt. Veeder grounds. In addition to our recreation programs for youth and adult campers, we hosted Blind Babies and Families, Chemistry Camp, STEM Camp, Horse Camp, Music Academy, deaf-blind sessions, Immersion programs for adults with changing vision, sessions for adults with special needs, and so much more!
This fall, we turn our focus to beautifying the property and taking advantage of the warm weather while it lasts. In September, a volunteer group from Timberland got their hands dirty with a special volunteer retreat, and this month we’ll have the same from UPS, who are sending a group to come put in work of their own on EHC. The contributions from groups like AmeriCorps continue to yield great rewards, as Construction Manager George Wurtzel has just completed his brand new blind arts woodworking shop, announcing his first immersive class for November.
As you can imagine, Enchanted Hills is almost entirely booked for 2015 and will book up fast for next year. Don’t miss out.
