Day Camp

Day Camp

The NBCF Discovery Day Camp incorporates adapted activities, arts and crafts, sports, community field trips, leadership opportunities, and more for children with visual impairment! The camp utilizes common core and expanded core curriculums to develop activities and opportunities for campers to try new things, become confident in their abilities, and gain independence as they explore their community through field trips with friends!

Discovery Day Camp provides professional staff with years of experience and a registered nurse is on-site. With the exception of field trips, all-day camp activities take place at the NBCF Learning Center.

Financial aid is available; please contact NBCF directly at (702) 735-6223.

Before-and-after camp care is available for a nominal fee. Early bird drop-off is 7:30 a.m., and Night Owl pick-up is 5:30 p.m.

Children new to the program must first complete a tour of NBCF and an evaluation of their mobility and self-care, prior to registering, to make sure our program will meet their needs. Children must function within a K-12 level.
