A Note to Parents/Guardians and Participants:

The EYE Retreat strives to provide an environment in which a simulated college experience is most realistic. However, our participants range in age from minors to adults. Also, our participants oftentimes have additional disabilities, besides blindness. Finally, facility and resource limitations impact our programming too. As a result, we walk a fine line in supervising all participants, providing a quality experience, and balancing the many partnerships we have to make our program a success. We ask for your support, flexibility, and communication. If you have concerns, please let us know. If you have ideas, send them our way. If you'd like to volunteer your expertise, please sign-up! In summary, some aspects of our program simply can't be changed because of legal concerns or facility use requirements. However, other aspects of our programming can be adjusted and we have a strong track record of taking parent/guardian, staff, and participant feedback into consideration. Please remember that the EYE Retreat has no paid staff. Everyone, including myself, are volunteers. Be sure to show your appreciation to our staff for their dedication.

Thank you,

Alan Chase, Ed.S.
President and Director
