BELL:  A Summer Braille Camp for Kids

The BELL Program, a project of the NFB Jernigan Institute, is a two week day
camp experience for blind and visually impaired children ages 4-12.
Officially the letters B.E.L.L. stand for “Braille Enrichment for Literacy
and Learning”, but for the kids the letters stand for F.U.N.   Both
beginners and more accomplished Braille readers will gain confidence in
reading and writing while engaged in games, crafts and exciting outdoor

The BELL program is being held in the Denver metro area from July 25 to
August 5, 2011, Monday through Friday (exact location to be determined).
  The program will be led by certified Braille teachers and others who love
Braille and use it every day.  There is no cost to attend, but families will
be encouraged to volunteer at least one day during the program.   Cash
donations will also be appreciated.  Transportation to and from the camp
will be the family’s responsibility.

Space is limited, so call soon to request an application.  For more
information contact program coordinator, Diane McGeorge, at 303-321-4268 or
e-mail rmcgeorge at comcast.net.
