 Camp Abilities is a four day overnight developmental sports camp for children who are visually impaired, blind, or deafblind. The camp is set up to provide a 1:1 instructional situation for each child.

Our counselors are pooled from physical education and special education undergraduate and graduate programs across the U.S., and overseas.  Since the first Camp Abilities at the College of Brockport in 1996, they have trained more than 800 future teachers in the area of sport and recreation for children with sensory impairments.  Many specialists that have worked at Camp Abilities are blind themselves, and serve as excellent role models for our children, some of whom have never met or socially interacted with another person who is blind.

Camp Abilities Long Island will be held at the campus of Adelphi University in Garden City, NY.  All campers and counselors will stay in the dorms at Adelphi University.
