Applicants should be prepared and excited to work with blind students of all capacities ages 11 - 21.
Challenge recreation and STEAM focused experiences are an exciting component of the summer programs at the Colorado Center for the Blind. Staff are expected to participate fully in the following activities: rock climbing, hiking, canoeing, white water rafting, martial arts classes, try Blind Hockey, tour college campuses, visit with Disability Resource Office counselors, attend a college life seminar, participate in a chemistry lab and much more.
