Camp Wanaqua Fund

Donation ButtonThank you for your interest in supporting NYISE. We believe every contribution matters and every contributor matters.
Support provided through this fund is directed to Camp Wanaqua, the only free summer day camp in the New York metropolitan area for blind or visually impaired children.
Based on our fully accessible campus, Camp Wanaqua provides a nurturing and supportive environment where campers engage in activities designed to encourage new skill development and increase self-confidence; all while building new friendships with their blind and visually impaired peers.
Made possible by the generosity of individual donors and foundation support, your donation helps to make Camp Wanaqua possible.
