Hi all,

There are still spots open in The Road Lies Ahead, a perceptual
mobility camp which will be held later this summer at Camp Tuhsmeheta
in Lowell Michigan.  The program is headed by Daniel Kish, a totally
blind orientation and mobility specialist who also teaches perceptual
navigation using flash sonar.  Activities in the program will
challenge students to expand and improve their skills while having
fun.  Games and activities from last year included hiking, rock
climbing, target practice using water guns and "swashbuckling"
(fighting with audible swords), various ball games including an
audible version of Quidditch from the Harry Potter series, practice
reading tactile maps and using a compass, an introduction to GPS
technology, hide and seek and "Black Ops" (hide and seek combined with
target practice to resemble capture the flag), and more.  Plenty of
time is left for socializing between staff/mentors and students after
the dinner hour.  The camp also boasts a regulation Showdown table,
which was quite popular among staff and students alike in free time
last year.  Lessons in independence are embedded throughout the
program in the dining hall, on the trails, and in cabin life.

Please circulate the attached flyers to students who could benefit.
If you have questions please email or call using the information near
the bottom of the flyer.

Thanks, and I can't wait to travel the road ahead with some eager
