Southeastern Guide Dogs has announced that the Charles and Margery Barancik Foundation has awarded a $50,000 grant to support a new Intro to Guide Dogs Camp to be held on the school’s Palmetto campus. Plans are currently being made to finalize the camp with its launch and first session planned for March 2019.

The objective of the camp will be to provide an educational and fun experience for children ages 14–17, who are visually impaired and who may be interested in becoming a guide dog handler, and for parents and guardians. Teen campers and parents will stay overnight in the school’s Barpal-Hirst Student Center during the three-day camp, and will experience simultaneous but different tracks, one for students and one for parents. As with all Southeastern Guide Dogs programs, there is no charge for participants.
