Camp Lions of Illinois is hosting “Vision Week” from July 24 to 30 at East Bay Camp, 24248 Ron Smith Memorial Highway, in Hudson.

While many activities are identical to the Lions’ other camps, this session highlights activities that accommodate youth ages 7 to 17 who are blind or have low vision.

Daily schedules are posted in large print and in Braille and feature choices including swimming, beeper baseball, horse riding, pontoon boat rides, beeper archery, and crafts such as painting or beading.

Every day is different and perfect for the creative spirit. Other activities include a beach party, cookouts, songs around the campfire, Braille bingo, cards and an assortment of tactile games and described videos.

Sleeping accommodations at Camp Lions “Vision Week” are in air-conditioned cabins with eight bunks to a room. Every cabin is one level and has a modern bathroom with a walk-in shower. The counselor-to-camper ratio is 1:4 to make Camp Lions a positive and safe experience.
