National Camp for the Blind makes Lake Wales stop

Share this story:

Horse riding is one of the activities that campers get to enjoy at Lake Aurora. Here, Arcadia's Debbie Crites sits tall in the saddle, one of the many activities put on by the National Camps for the Blind which used the Lake Wales facility last week.

Keeping hydrated was an important consideration, but there was lots of water, and shade, to help combat the heat. Here, Donald Retemiah, a camp counselor, pours a cup of water while Elwin Merrill of Wesley Chapel. one of the campers, also enjoys a cool drink.

Jackie Grace, who came all the way from Alabama for the fun, tries her hand at disc golf. Campers are guided to the target by a beeping ball placed on top of the frisbee baskets. She was a pretty good shot, although this one just sailed a little high of the mark.


Lake Wales resident Cliff Paden pilots pontoon boat back to the dogs and Lake Aurura Christian Camp last week. Paden was helping to host a National Camps for the Blind week.
