VIDBE-Q Volume 67 Issue 3 Karen Koehler, kkohler@shawnee.edu Doug Sturgeon, dsturgeon@shawnee.edu, Shawnee State University Going to summer camp is one of the many experiences we all remember from childhood and can be an integral part of a child's social, emotional, and educational development. Thousands of children of all ages attend summer camps each year, but these camps are rarely designed for or accessible to children with low incidence sensory disabilities (blind/low vision, Deaf/hard of hearing, deafblind). The specialized camps that do exist may be inaccessible to children who live outside of the large metropolitan areas of the state due to the inability of parents to transport the child to and from camp. Having limited access to these specialized camps leaves children at a disadvantage to maintaining and building necessary skills in the areas of orientation and mobility, recreation and leisure, academic support, self-determination, social skills, compensatory access, and other areas of the expanded core curriculum (ECC).
