Camp GDB will be held July 22-26, 2018 at Oral Hull Foundation for the Blind in Sandy, Oregon. 

Guide Dogs for the Blind recognizes that the human-animal bond is unique; we want to give teens with visual impairments the opportunity to experience its life-changing potential.

Every year GDB invites youth ages 14-17 who are legally blind to apply for our camp program. Camp is open to up to 12 qualified youth. 

At Camp GDB, participants will explore the companionship, independence, and responsibility of having a guide dog. Campers receive hands-on guide dog instruction with an emphasis on understanding the specific orientation and mobility skills required to be a successful guide dog handler, as well as the fitness and endurance necessary for guide dog travel.

Qualified applicants are blind or visually impaired and seriously considering the guide dog lifestyle. Campers are responsible for their own daily living skills. Campers will be chaperoned around the clock by GDB staff, and all meals will be provided.

Camp GDB is FREE to up to 12 qualified applicants; families are responsible for providing transportation to and from Camp. If traveling by plane, GDB will provide transportation to and from the airport.

If you or someone you know would be interested in attending Camp GDB, please contact Jane Flower at or 800.295.4050.
