FREDONIA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Bryce Jensen is one of dozens of campers enjoying the great outdoors at JCC Rainbow Camp.

"I love this place. I've been coming here for four years and I'm never [going to] stop. I love this place beyond words," said Jensen. "It's so fun and energetic and you just get to be with super awesome people and I've made best friends from this camp."

Jensen participated in the second year of Rainbow Day Camp, a week-long experience created by The Harry and Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center and Vision Forward. The camp is catered for students who are blind or visually impaired.

As the camp progresses, children play sports and other outdoor activities adapted for youth with vision loss. Many of the campers take part in experiences they've never imagined being able to participate.

"I really liked playing hockey. I also liked doing dodgeball and swimming was also really fun," said camper Samuel Yuan.

"They give you a second chance in life, like how they give you new activities and help you learn new thing," said camper Sonyn Legary.
