Thursday, May 05, 2022

MUSKOGEE, Okla. – Oklahoma School for the Blind will host two free summer camps for students who are blind or visually impaired.

Students in kindergarten through 9th grade are invited to attend “The Greatest Camp on Earth,” June 6 through 9 and June 13 – 16 on the OSB Campus, 3300 Gibson Street in Muskogee. Students will go home the weekend of June 10-12.

“We picked a fun circus theme for this summer camp with activities like Safari Sanctuary coming to visit with exotic animals,” Shawna Coplen, OSB elementary principal, said.

Students will take field trips to the Oklahoma Science Museum in Oklahoma City and Tulsa Discovery Lab at the Gathering Place in Tulsa. OSB organizers have also planned hands-on projects, evening recreation time with trips to the pool, craft night, Bingo Night and more.

OSB’s second summer program “Skills to Pay the Bills,” will also take place on the OSB campus from June 6 to 16 for students who will be in grades 10 through 12 in fall 2022.

“Skills to pay the bills will help participants reach their goals for college or employment with activities that include team building, on or off campus employment, financial planning, independent travel and field trips,” Lynn Cragg, OSB Middle School and High School principal, said.

Both summer camps are open to blind or visually impaired students who meet OSB’s vision requirements.

The application for both camps is on the OSB website at http://osb.k12.ok.us/images/PDF/SummerCampApplication2022.pdf.
