If you’re looking for an unforgettable summer experience for your low vision child, Camp Helen Keller is it! Run by Helen Keller Services for the Blind (HKSB) on the Post Campus of LIU, the camp aims to improve self-esteem, self-confidence and socialization skills in children ages 4-15. Our low 3:1 camper-to-counselor ratio ensures that campers receive a high level of personal attention as they engage in activities and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Meet our Camp Director, Stephanie MacLennan!

Stephanie MacLennan has been working at Camp Helen Keller for over 20 years, and has been the program director since 2011. She is a licensed clinical social worker and supervisor, and specializes in development, mental health, and behavior among children with special needs, specifically sensory loss. She works with campers and their families to ensure that the five weeks at camp are meaningful and beneficial to each child’s progress. During the academic year, Stephanie works as a school social worker, but Camp Helen Keller holds a special place in her heart. She is always looking to expand camp activities, go on new and exciting field trips, and grow the program. She keeps a countdown to the first day of camp; she’s just as excited as the kids to start each season!

Behind the children is a large screen that shows a rainbow peace sign, a rainbow heart, and the acronym "CHK" on it, and underneath those symbols are the words "peace, love, and Camp Helen Keller"
