Leader Dog Summer Experience 2013
Are you a teenager who could use a week of fun, outdoor activity and friendship this summer? Does kayaking, rock wall climbing and tandem biking sound good to you? Would you enjoy the challenge of developing new travel skills and stretching your independence? If so, the Leader Dogs for the Blind Summer Experience was designed with you in mind.
The Summer Experience program combines outdoor camp activities with things exclusively Leader Dog—audible pedestrian GPS training and the opportunity to try-out the guide dog lifestyle. The combination will help you increase the skills you need to live independently!
The Leader Dog Summer Experience is for boys and girls ages 16 and 17 who are legally blind. The program is completely free including airfare—and everyone receives a free Kapten PLUS audible pedestrian GPS device to keep. The Leader Dog Summer Experience is scheduled for June 21—June 28, 2013, so now is the time to complete and submit an application.
