Campers and Counselors Share Bond at Camp Vision

KEENE, N.H., 06/23/10 - Camp Vision is a place where counselors and campers have a unique understanding of each other. Both groups have learning disabilities.

Camp Vision, for ages 10 through 14, focuses on improving campers’ self-esteem through a mentoring relationship with counselors. During a week of activities focusing on art, independent learning projects, and sports and games, campers have fun while gaining self-advocacy skills.

The August 16 to 20 day camp, on the Keene State college campus, runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Parents walk students to the classroom and meet them at that same location. Parents supply snacks and drinks for break time and lunch.

The college student counselors have worked with their own learning differences, achieving academic success. Project Eye-to-Eye, which trains the counselors, is the only nationally based mentoring program working directly with LD/ADHD youth to build self-esteem, develop self-awareness, and introduce academic accommodations.

The cost per child is $225 for the week. Limited scholarships are available. Prompt registration is advisable.

Camp Vision is in its third year and represents a joint effort by Keene State College, Project Eye-to-Eye, and The Monadnock Center for Successful Transition.

Camp Vision details and registration are available electronically ( Request a brochure from Keene State College, Continuing Education (358-2290) or stop by the office (229 Main Street, Elliot Center, Keene, NH 03435) to pick one up from the information rack outside the office.
