Washington Camp Spark

Camp Spark Logo

Camp Spark’s Washington sessions are a fantastic opportunity for youth who are blind or visually impaired to partake in comprehensive sports camps.  The week-long summer session is for ages 9 to 15 years old and the weekend winter camp session is for ages 12 to 15 years old.  Summer camp activities include swimming, tandem biking, judo, goalball, track and field, and much more!  Winter camp activities include downhill skiing and snowboarding, broomball, tubing, and much more.  We pride ourselves on developing one BIG camp family that grows every year a bit more. We encourage community building, creating long lasting friendships and having powerful, positive experiences throughout the week.

In addition to learning a variety of sports, campers will also develop their orientation and mobility skills, expand their independence skills and advocacy skills under the instruction of many different types of educators. Our staff includes individuals from all over the country in many different specialty areas. Some of these areas include, adapted physical education professionals, teachers of the visually impaired, orientation and mobility specialists and recreational therapists and more! Our camp focuses on growing the whole camper in all areas of life in a fun, innovative and inclusive environment.

Camp Spark’s Washington summer session will be hosted on the University of Puget Sound campus in Tacoma, WA from July 26 to July 31, 2020. Camp Spark’s Washington winter session will be hosted at Ghormley Meadow Christian Camp from January 10 to 12, 2020.  All of our camps are sleep-over camps; they are not day camps. Camp Spark’s Washington sessions are no-cost for campers who meet the eligibility requirements.

Camp registration is closed currently.  Registration for our winter sessions will open on November 1, 2019 at 6:00 am and our summer sessions on December 2, 2019 at 6:00 am.

“NWABA is a game-changer for me because it gave me a TEAM! I learned that there are no winners or losers in life. This summer I spent the whole week at Camp [Spark] with kids who are blind or visually impaired, like me! Surprisingly enough, I fit in! It felt like everyone understood what I had been going through my entire life. We had soooo much fun there! It felt like I was not alone anymore. With NWABA, I found my group!”
