Subject: [braille-n-teach] Announcements: The 2011 Transition Summit And Chemistry Camp at Enchanted Hills Camp, Napa Ca, April 29th to May 1st
Colleagues, in the body of this email are two announcements for retreats for blind and low vision transition aged teens and young adults that will be hosted at Enchanted Hills Camp in Napa from Friday afternoon, April 29th through Sunday, May 1st, 2011. The first is the notice for the Dept. of Rehabilitation sponsored Transition Summit followed by the Chemistry Camp. Both events will occur at the same time. Some, but not all of the weekends events and sessions will overlap, while at other times, each group will have unique programming. Transportation pick up points for both groups will include the LightHouse in San Francisco as well as the Ashby BART station (Ed Roberts Campus) in the east bay. Other pick up points may be added.
Please read ahead for details on each of the offerings and make your referrals accordingly. Plans are underway for a compelling learning experience this spring at Enchanted Hills Camp. Make your referrals today!
