6th Annual Mimi Fishman Winter Adventure Camp

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

The Mimi Fishman Foundation, for the sixth year in a row, has sponsored the Winter Adventure Camp for school age children with a visual impairment.  The purpose of the 2-day 1-night winter trip is to prepare for a more challenging summer adventure trip, in addition to working on individual goals in the areas of social skills, independence, and participating in exciting activities. 
This year, 14 participants travelled to YMCA Trout Lodge, located in Potosi, Missouri, ages ranging from six to twenty years old.  Each of the participants had the opportunity to learn that one doesn’t necessarily need sight to make a good shot in archery, instead body awareness and muscle memory are extremely important.
