I am reposting this from the AER list serve. Plese go to the web site
listed, and do not reply directly to this e-mail....Candy

We are once again recruiting for volunteer camp counselors in Alaska.
In past years, we have received TVI's and future TVI's from all over
the nation, and hope we can find great help once again. Please feel
free to post this to any university billboards or listserves that you
feel would be appropriate. This has been a great network to help us get
the word out.

My name is Jacinda Danner and I am the Vision Specialist
for Camp Abilities Alaska. I am searching
for volunteers for our week-long developmental sports
camp in Wasilla, Alaska. This year's
dates are July 7-15th, 2008.

Camp Abilities Alaska is a developmental sports camp
for youth who are visually impaired, blind or
deafblind. Activities include hiking, swimming, beep
baseball, goalball, track and field, kayaking, and
archery. We are looking for current and future teachers of the
visually impaired, adapted physical educators, special education
majors, and anyone with
interest in working with youth who want a great
week-long learning opportunity as a camp counselor.

Camp is held at a lodge with cabins, a small lake
and great Alaskan views. The volunteers will learn
how to teach youth who have a visual impairment how to
participate in sports and recreation and get
to know some great people. Some colleges have used
this experience as practicum hours toward a degree in
teaching those with visual impairments, adapted physical
education or other related fields.

Please visit the website:
for more information.
This can be the excuse you
have always wanted to visit this great state!
I hope to hear from you soon!

Thank you,
