Visions Adventures in Learning

Visions: Adventures in Learning

Junior Blind's Visions: Adventures in Learning program provides teens who are blind or visually impaired with empowering, life-changing recreational experiences through exciting and challenging three-day learning adventures. The Visions program helps teens prepare for independent living by challenging them to overcome physical and emotional obstacles that would be daunting to anyone. Along the way, they learn the power of teamwork, confidence, trust, and leadership. Past adventures have included whitewater rafting, hiking through the Grand Canyon, rock climbing in Yosemite and snowboarding.
