June 4 is the first day of camp for kids who are blind or have trouble seeing.

The Nevada Blind Children's Foundation hosts the camp and they just moved into a new building in Henderson. It's four times the size of where they were, which means more kids can come to camp.

Kids as young as five years old get the chance to feel comfortable around people just like them. Bonus, the camp is running for an additional third week this year.


It might look like any other camp but being together is powerful.

"We want to be their cheerleaders and their champions so you do get emotional because you want them to succeed," said Veronica Atkins, the development director for the Nevada Blind Children's Foundation.

It's not too late to sign up for camp. It's $50 per week, but they do offer scholarships.
