Teens 14‒17 years old in the U.S. and Canada can expect an awesome lineup of virtual activities. Just like our traditional camp we will be exploring mobility options like guide dog travel, building leadership skills and developing relationships with peers. Zoom will be used as our conferencing platform for two 1-hour virtual sessions each day, at 12 p.m. and 3 p.m., Eastern Standard Time. Teens can look forward to a Q&A session with a guide dog mobility instructor, a game session, and lots more! Presenters will include orientation and mobility instructors, guide dog mobility instructors, and some special surprise guests as well.
