Mission Statement

Christ's Outreach for the Blind is dedicated to building character, confidence, and self-esteem in the lives of the physically challenged while striving to strengthen their families and more fully integrate them into their community. By providing unique life experiences, we hope to motivate participants to be independent, responsible, and productive; thus, overcoming their fears and dependencies. Our camp will teach each participant that there can be enjoyment, meaning and purpose in life. Christ's Outreach for the Blind promotes activities that encourage mental and social healthiness, seeking to improve and increase health care while facilitating wellness, prevention and rehabilitation. Our goals and objectives are to help children benefit from repeated opportunities to interact with others, develop a positive self-image and experience the simplest pleasures of life. We plan to meet these goals and objectives through a staff that will lovingly provide hand over hand instruction in the fine and gross motor skills, posture, flexibility, and balance needed to perform everyday living skills. Some students may develop pre-vocational skills that allow them to eventually function in an independent or semi-independent work environment.

Description

Christ's Outreach is a camp for blind and/or physically handicapped persons. We provide activities and opportunities to our participants that are not generally offered to the handicapped population.
