Camp Wanaqua is the only free summer day camp for blind and visually impaired children in the New York metropolitan area.
A place where blind or visually impaired children can unwind, unplug and engage with their peers, Camp Wanaqua takes place on our main campus in the Bronx for six weeks in July and August, Monday - Thursday (9:00 AM - 3:00 PM).
