NOTE: The 2014 All Hands on Braille Program has concluded. More information on the future of the All Hands on Braille camp wil be forthcoming. The below information is archived for reference purposes.
The All Hands on Braille Program introduces blind and low vision children to the beauty of braille through a one-week summer curriculum that is fun, creative and comprehensive. AEBC is working with Braille Literacy Canada, Citizens with Disabilities Ontario, and CNIB to deliver this exciting new program.
All Hands on Braille emphasizes the importance of braille through a fun, creative and comprehensive curriculum that includes braille and other essential blindness skills as well as the arts, science and recreation. At All Hands on Braille, students participate in confidence-building activities with blind peers and are mentored by independent, professional blind adults. Most importantly, they will experience the beauty of braille first-hand. The All Hands on Braille program will take place at the CNIB Lake Joseph Centre.
