MAXATAWNY TWP., Pa. - Middle school students from across Pennsylvania are at Kutztown University for a special summer camp.
Campers at the Junior Summer Academy are doing all of the typical camp activities, but they're also taking classes on mobility and living independently. That's because the camp is for students who are blind or visually impaired.
On Thursday, campers had to download an app and find their way to a nearby ice cream store.
"It's an opportunity to give them a camp life experience while learning some of the critical adaptive skills that our youth needs today so they can be successful in high school and in their dreams beyond that," said Lynn Fox, instructor.
The camp is put on by the state. It will run through Sunday.
Three separate train rides celebrated the holiday Irish style.Read More »
