Madison was a camper at Camp Teen Challenge, a camp for teens with vision differences, for several summers at Variety’s Peaceable Kingdom. During the self-defense session, Madison was asked what one of her fears was, so that she could break through a Styrofoam board symbolizing that fear. Madison shared that she was scared of the deep end of the pool. As a person who is totally blind, Madison felt more comfortable staying in the shallow end, where she could feel the bottom of the pool under her feet. Later in the afternoon, Madison agreed to journey into the deep end for the first time, with the help of Peaceable Kingdom staff guiding her in case she needed reassurance. It’s moments like these that only camp can spark-in an environment where you are set up to succeed, why wouldn’t you face your deepest fear?
