Blind Camp

So, you've never attended summer camp before? Then let me tell you a little bit about what it's like. Generally, the camps that partner with Christian Record in offering camps for the blind are in rural locations where you can hear all kinds of birds, frogs, even the sound of dragonflies as they skim across the lake. There is the gentle sound of wind through the trees and a cool breeze on your face while you ride trail horses with camp wranglers. Then there are the wonderful smells of the forest, pine needles, and sap on tree bark. And, smells from the kitchen! Oh my. Homemade cinnamon rolls, that was one of my favorites. In the evening there is always a wonderful program where you sing silly campfire songs, share stories with friends, and hear about Jesus. Some of the most wonderful friendships are forged at camp. One of my best friends still today spent several camp seasons with me, starting when we were kids. We live in different states now, but either of us can pick up the phone and start talking to each other, it's like there were no miles or time between us.

Camp. It's a place to splash in the cool water, ride in a speedboat with friends, try to canoe (that's another story), ride horses for the first time, hike a Braille trail, visit with friends until late into the evening. You experience, engage, and enjoy life in a whole new way. It's a community that sustains you throughout the rest of the year.
