Foresight Ski Guides, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to making challenging recreational opportunities through snow sports both affordable and accessible to visually impaired and blind skiers.
Foresight’s New Summer Camp for Blind Youth
Foresight is pleased to announce the launch of its Summer Camp for Blind Youth providing new challenge recreation opportunities for blind and visually impaired youth. Blind campers participated in stand-up paddle boarding, hiking, rock climbing, archery, and fly fishing over two-days.
Campers identified their goals prior to participating in each activity along with any fears they may have had. The only rule… they had to at least try each activity. The campers not only tried they conquered climbing up a rock wall face; paddle boarding on a lake and even shooting arrows at a target! All of the campers reached their goals and overcame any fears… all while having a great time.
Foresight is thrilled to have another outlet for blind and visually impaired youth to push through barriers, build confidence and increase self-esteem. Foresight offers its summer camp, and its transformative ski program, to blind and visually impaired youth for little to no cost. Please consider making a donation so programs like this can continue and grow for years to come.
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

NEW AND NOTEWORTHY
Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021
2020 is quickly coming to an end and for many it could not come soon enough. To say the last nine months have been challenging is an understatement.
