Subject: NFB BELL DC Program


Please share the following widely:




For anyone who has or knows someone who has a child who is blind or visually impaired in the DC/MD/VA area. I’m so excited about the upcoming BELL camp for kids. Registration is open! And below is the link to register. Please share this with your friends and networks so we can reach as many kids as possible. 

The NFB BELL (Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning) Academy prepares blind and low-vision children, ages four through twelve, to grow into confident and independent blind people who live the lives they want.


In addition to Braille crafts, games, and other engaging projects, children learn vital independent living skills, interact with blind adults who serve as mentors, and enjoy field trips to sites related to the NFB BELL Academy curriculum. Through these activities and interactions, the children learn that blindness or low vision does not define them or their future. 


The event dates are July 29 - August 9.  9:00 am - 3:30 PM 


Please reach out to me with any questions. 


Here is the link to apply:
