Last year, despite challenges from the pandemic we still served over 700 children. We need your help to continue our critical work to make a difference in the lives of children with vision loss!

We need our VIPS supporters help more than ever during this uniquely challenging time with the gift of a new donation or pledge, or continuing your existing your support. If you are not a monthly donor--now would be a great time to initiate a monthly gift. The families we serve depend on our teachers and we depend on you to help us in our critical mission to provide early intervention to every child with blindness or low vision.

Summer Enrichment Program

VIPS Summer Enrichment “bridges the gap” between school years to help prevent loss of skills over the summer months.  It also provides respite in a developmentally appropriate setting.

Summer Enrichment is held throughout the months of June and July, for a total of six weeks. Families can register their child(ren) for single days, a number of weeks or the whole summer.

Summer Enrichment does allow for a limited number of Community Peers.

Please note transportation is not available for Summer Enrichment.

Summer Sensations Camp

Our Summer Sensations Camp provides a variety of fun and exciting sensory activities, crafts, gross motor activities and special guests from the community!

Camp is open to all current and former VIPS children and their siblings up to age 8. Camp is offered in June and July.  The morning session is for children birth to 3 years and is held from 9:30 am - 11:30 am.  The afternoon session is for children ages 3 ½ to 8 years and is held from 1:00 pm-3:00 pm.

This program is free for all, and parents are welcome to stay and participate in the fun if they wish.  For parents who wish to drop their child(ren) off, we have several volunteers from the University of Kentucky’s College of Education-Visual Impairments Program, Midway University Nursing Program, Delta Gamma Fraternity, and other community partners.

No VIPS child or family will be denied services based on income.
