Camp Wanaqua is the only free summer day camp for blind and visually impaired children in the New York metropolitan area. A place where kids can unwind, unplug and engage with their peers, camp takes place on our main campus in the Bronx for six weeks in July and August, Monday - Thursday, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM.
Providing a supportive environment that strengthens camper's self-esteem, resilience, and independence, campers' days are filled with games, enriching activities, cooking classes, workshops, and field trips that explore all NYC has to offer.
