Deaf-Blind Camp of Maryland Visits NASA Goddard

NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., hosted some 100 campers and volunteers from the Deaf-Blind Camp of Maryland on June 12. The camp, based in West River, Md., was established in 1998 to provide a safe, fun, barrier-free week for people who have significant hearing and vision loss.


Camp leaders requested the tour to highlight this year’s theme: “Out of this world."


The event started at Goddard’s Visitors Center, where the campers, aged 18 to 80, learned about space and NASA missions. The crowd favorite was touching the rockets in the Goddard Rocket Garden.


"This is a beautiful experience," said 61-year-old camper Betsy Wohl.
