Camp Abilities set up shop this week in Salem for the first time on the west coast.
The Northwest Association for Blind Athletes hosted kids from Oregon, Washington and Montana to develop skills in sports.
Organizers say the purpose of the camp is to empower blind and visually challenged children, helping them gain confidence, self-esteem and independence.
Campers spent the week on the campus of Willamette University participating in events like goalball, swimming, judo, beep baseball, tandem biking and hiking.
