This camp is specifically designed to give young people with a visual impairment the opportunity to have fun, play sports and make new friends, whilst developing key leadership and employability skills through a qualification accredited by Sports Leaders UK.
You will be supported by the artists at Magdalen Farm to create natural art work. This includes dreamcatchers, woodland medallions, clay creatures, wet felting or twig frames, all inspired by our trip to the beach during day 2.
This trip will combine many different visually impaired sports, from blind football to cycling to blind cricket. You will also have the opportunity to get stuck into and test yourself at Oaker Wood Outdoor Adventure Centre.
We'll discuss the principle causes of sight loss in children, adults and older people and the associated functional symptoms in initial and advanced stages, accessibility challenges people with a visual impairment experience when visiting eye care practices and reasonable adjustments to be made to comply with current UK legislation.
This free to attend information day is a great opportunity to find out more about Inherited Retinal Dystrophies and will include presentations from leading medical professionals and our partners within the sight loss sector.
