An exciting learning adventure for Illinois students ages 9 to 19 who are blind and visually impaired

The Illinois School for the Visually Impaired (ISVI) will offer three camps from June 25-29 on the ISVI campus in Jacksonville..

Students from throughout Illinois can join an exciting learning adventure designed for their age group:

  • Junior S.T.E.A.M. Camp is for ages 9 to 12. Discover and experience team-building activities that apply S.T.E.A.M. skills through games, fun activities, art and music.
  • S.T.E.A.M. Camp is for ages 12 to 16. Students will problem-solve strategies using math, science, art and music skills, integrating technology and engineering.
  • Transition to Independence is for ages 16 to 19. Plan your future by learning independent living skills that promote a successful transition to adulthood through nutrition, fitness, technology, employment skills and recreation.

Students who are visually impaired, ages 9 to 19, are eligible to attend the camp if they:

  • Reside in Illinois
  • Do not currently attend ISVI
  • Are not high school graduates
  • Have appropriate independent living skills

The cost is $15 per camper. Scholarships are available by calling Heather Staats at (217) 479-4447.
