2008 Special Braille Camp Events
Parade of Puppies
Puppies in training to be guide dogs and their trainers from Guide Dogs for the Blind opened Braille Camp with a Parade of Puppies. The children learned about guide dogs and the work they do. They had opportunity to brush the puppies, walk the puppies on a leash, and learn simple commands.
Blues in the Schools
Curley Cooke and Annette Tayborn returned for a second summer of foot-stomping, hand-clapping music. Always popular with the Braille Camp gang, Curley and Annette were with us for two performances during the two-week camp.
