Finding their way
By Our Kids Publications Ltd.
CNIB Lake Joseph Centre, nestled in the heart of Ontario's beautiful Muskoka district at Mactier, 18 miles south of Parry Sound, provides subsidized,
professional recreation programs for people who are blind, visually impaired and deaf-blind. The centre's carefully planned programs are based on the philosophy that through leisure and recreation, rehabilitation flows easily and naturally.
Top: Chris Nut, who is blind and can't walk, is nonetheless joyously involved in his life as a camper. Amy Witzel is one of two counsellors designated to
supervise Chris's activities. Above: After a late swim, Tom Appleyard helps Greg Chamber find his way back to his cabin.
Campers and counsellors form a circle of friendship under an amazing Muskoka sky at the end of a day at CNIB Lake Joseph Centre, which has made summer vacations possible for thousands of blind and
visually impaired Canadians for almost 30 years. As at all camps, campers quickly make lasting friendships, gain self-confidence and become more independent. During July and August, the centre is reserved for the exclusive use of clients of the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and their families.
