Below, you will find info about camp this summer at Rocky bottom. Half the
spots have been filled and we are looking for 13 more campers, so, please
pass the word!
I am also looking for volunteers, mostly blind, but definitely need some
sighted assistance as well. Please contact Jennifer Bazer if you wish to be
a camper, junior counselor or adult sighted or blind volunteer. Mandatory
background checks are performed on all volunteers and interviewed by the
director before a decision is made for volunteers.
