Camp Abilities Saratoga Open House

BALLSTON SPA — Camp Abilities Saratoga is inviting the public to join them and learn more about adaptive sports for the blind and visually impaired youth during an open house on Sept. 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the “Lion’s Den” at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds (162 Prospect Street, Ballston Spa). 

Camp Abilities Saratoga (CAS) is a one-week educational sports camp for youth who are blind, visually impaired, and deafblind, and is a service project of the Saratoga Springs Lions Club. The Camp Director and specialists will be demonstrating adaptive sports equipment that is used throughout the camp with an opportunity to try it firsthand.

CAS’s first camp was in 2014 and has been held every year since. Due to COVID, they dedicated themselves to continue to hold camps in 2020 and 2021 to provide services and continue a sense of family/normalcy by holding virtual camps. Virtual Camp and Virtual Mini Camps are held via Zoom. They are prepared to hold in-person camps in 2022. CAS camps are held at Skidmore College.
