OWL Camps

OWL (Oklahomans Without Limits) Camp is NewView Oklahoma’s free summer camp for kids ages 8-18, who are blind and visually impaired! 
 

NewView Oklahoma believes that every child deserves to have a summer camp experience. OWL Camp was created in 2000 and has grown to two weeks of camp hosting 30 - 40 campers. Camp activities are carefully planned and designed to encourage collaboration, improve confidence, self-esteem, and independence, and challenge societal and self-imposed limits through a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, with a new theme each year!

This year, the Tulsa OWL Camp will be held at Lake Tenkiller and the OKC OWL Camp will be held at YMCA Camp Classen in Davis, Oklahoma.

2018 Tulsa Camp: June 29- July 2 | Lake Tenkiller | Ages 15-18

2018 OKC Camp: July 15-July 21 | YMCA Camp Classen| Ages 8-14

2017 OWL Camp Recap:

“We had a blast at our 18th annual summer OWL Camps and the campers did too! This one-of-a-kind camp experience for visually impaired and blind Oklahoma youth between 8 to 18 years old is a staple program that grows every year!"
 
Campers between 15 and 18 years old participated in adaptive water activities such as water skiing, wakeboarding, and tubing with internationally renowned adaptive water instructors at Lake Tenkiller. Campers also enjoyed activities like fishing, swimming, and boat rides, in addition to learning and practicing healthy life skills.
 
Younger campers between the ages of 8 and 14 years old stayed on the beautiful University of Central Oklahoma campus with Sighted Buddies, participated in themed activities, and went on amazing trips to local treasures like the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Science Museum Oklahoma, Oklahoma City Zoo, and more!

To keep up with the amazing growth and expressed interest from applicants, the community, and program partners, we’re continually implementing new components to our camp structure that allows for even more participation!”
