Simple tasks like washing your face or making a sandwich are actions many of us take for granted, but for some, simple tasks are anything but simple. That’s where Camp Sight comes into play. The camp is for local youth who are visually impaired. Some of those simple tasks are taught while the youngsters get to explore all kinds of different activities and places. Camp sight is hosted each summer by Community Services for Sight, an organization dedicated to assisting adults and children who are visually impaired. On Tuesday, News 13 caught up with the 18 campers as they took a trip to the Keystone Job Corps. The campers and Keystone students teamed up to explore three different trades; cooking, nursing and plumping. Many of the activities were a first for the campers who all learned alot while having fun. After the kids learned about the programs, they were treated to lunch by the culinary students. Camp Sight will wrap up in the coming days when a graduation ceremony is celebrated. On Wednesday’s agenda, these little ones will take a visit to the Community Services for Sight office in Hazle township. Later the kids will hit the lanes and hope for a strike at Valley Bowling Lanes.
