All blind camps are state-certified. Those with an asterisk are also accredited by the American Camping Association, which adds an additional dimension of safety standards. ACA-Accredited camps ensure key aspects of camp operation, program quality, and the health and safety of campers and staff. 

Youth Camp Integrated Model (YCIM) Pilot Program: NCBC is excited to announce the YCIM Pilot Program’s launch for the 2021 summer season. The parents or guardians of legally blind youth campers (typically age 7-18, but may vary by location) are invited to contact participating camps to receive more information, as space is limited. The goal of YCIM is to invite blind youngsters to experience camp through integrated programs with sighted peers, aligning in much the same way as many integrated school programs. YCIM campers may attend camp, either independently or with similar age/same-gender sighted guide assistance, on scholarship through NCBC. The “one NCBC scholarship per camper per year” rule applies to YCIM program locations.
