Oklahomans Without Limits is NewView Oklahoma’s free summer camp for blind and visually impaired youth, ages of 8-18. Going into its 17th year, OWL Camp now accepts more than 40 blind and visually kids from across our state!
Camp activities are carefully planned and designed to encourage collaboration, improve confidence, self-esteem, and independence, and challenge societal and self-imposed limits through a variety of activities in an accessible environment. The focus is on capability rather than disability.
Beginning in 2015, campers between 15 and 18 years old travel to Grand Lake in Langley, Oklahoma where they participate in adaptive water activities such as water skiing, wake boarding, and tubing with internationally-renowned adaptive water instructors; campers also enjoy activities like fishing, swimming, and boat rides, in addition to learning and practicing healthy life skills.
Younger campers between the ages of 8-14 get the opportunity to stay on the beautiful University of Central Oklahoma campus with Sighted Buddies, to participate in themed activities and go on amazing trips to local treasures like the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Science Museum Oklahoma, Oklahoma City Zoo, and more! Each camp is overnight, Monday-Friday, and incorporates learning adaptive, independent living skills.
With the support of community partners and generous donors, NewView Oklahoma can provide blind and visually impaired youth statewide with an unforgettable camp experience that will prepare them to live happy, independent and productive lives!
