The Camp Bowen Society for the Independence of the Blind and Deafblind believes in being involved in and contributing to our local community of Bowen Island and across the country.
The group presentations team visits schools and other community groups to speak about what it is like to be blind. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about Braille, assistive technology, how blind people travel, and, most of all, that people who are blind are just people like any other.
If you would like to have us speak in front of your class or community group, please contact us.
