With summer events already in progress, Camp T is fast approaching its busy fall and winter season. Fall is a popular time, due to the start of the school year combined with the shorter days, cooler nights, and leaves changing color. As always, Camp T’s staff looks forward to monthly Family Nature Clubs, birding events, and the many school groups that have reserved time at camp. This season, Camp T will add more events for campers who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing (DHH).

Goalball is gaining popularity with students who are Blind/Visually Impaired (BVI), so Camp T has been including the sport in its indoor programming. Oak Recreation Center is a great venue at camp for introducing students to goalball and helping them build athletic skills for playing the game. Several Paralympic goalball players and amateur players are Camp T alumni, and they have been thrilled to pass on the love of the sport to others. Likewise, campers have quickly embraced the sport, which uses their capabilities in a competitive environment. With a facility designed for goalball and the support of current players, Camp T is fostering future athletes and aspiring Paralympians!
