Camp Wanaqua Fund

Thank you for your interest in supporting NYISE. 
We believe every contribution matters and every contributor matters.
 
Camp Wanaqua is the only free summer day camp for blind or visually impaired children in the New York metropolitan area. A place where kids children can unwind, unplug and engage with their peers, camp takes place on our Bronx campus for six weeks in July and August, Monday - Thursday (9:00 AM - 3:00 PM). Providing a nurturing and supportive environment that strengthens campers self-esteem, resilience, and independence, each day campers take part in a variety of activities that range from pirate games and horseback riding to participating in a theater workshop or going on a Classic Harbor Line Cruise around the Statue of Liberty. Stay tuned for details on this summer's activities and watch the video below for a look back at Camp Wanaqua 2018.
