The Junior Explorer’s Club invites children who are blind or partially sighted and their sighted siblings to meet one Saturday a month. The purpose of the club is to introduce children to a variety of recreational and artistic activities, teach basic skills related to physical activity, foster the development of friendships, and have fun! The unique learning and developmental needs of blind children are addressed to help them develop cognitive, social, creative and coordination skills through sports activities, creative arts, music and other recreation activities.

Activities will be developed for children 5 to 12 years of age. Children who are younger than 5 or older than 12 who would enjoy activities for this age group are welcome.

Blind Beginnings would like to thank Westminster Savings for providing funding for this program.
