NACHES, Wash. - Northwest Association for Blind Athletes hosted its first winter camp for children with visual impairments in Naches.
12 children from across the state will get to enjoy various activities until Sunday, Jan. 13, at the Ghormley Meadow Retreat Center.
The winter camp was designed to be more intimate by allowing children to build a special bond among each other.
All of the games they will be playing are designed to help them.
Director of Programs Stacey Gibbins said the camp is free for the families.
“We don’t charge the families because we don’t want to have any barriers for them to not participate,” said Gibbins. “We actually filled the spots within 24 hours.”
On Saturday, Jan. 12, children had the opportunity to go to White Pass and on Sunday before they leave they will be tubing.
